Cross-Border Conundrums: Examining Workplace Investigations in the United States and Abroad
In-Person Saturday 09/11/2021 02:15 PM - 03:15 PM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), Workplace (Technical)
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn how conducting investigations in the U.S. as well as in other countries and across borders brings additional challenges from culture and compliance standpoints. 

Conducting an investigation correctly and with sensitivity is more important than ever, both in a national and global context. In-house counsel and HR professionals must know the legal framework in the country at issue, as well as key cultural considerations. Our speaker will provide an overview of the do’s and don’ts when conducting workplace investigations, including critical topics like the timing of the investigation, who to involve, and procedures for making sure the investigation is legally sound and culturally appropriate—no matter where it’s being conducted.

Learning Objectives:

  • Hear how investigations in the workplace may vary depending on the country where they are conducted.
  • Learn how investigators must not only get to the truth, but also navigate conflicting cultural norms and values, language barriers and differing local laws.
  • Discover the unique investigation conundrums that may arise, and how your organization can ensure each investigation is both legally sound and culturally appropriate.
