AWI Webinar: Virtual Wrongdoing: Investigating the Fall-Out from Remote Work Arrangements During COVID-19
Webinars are 1 hour long.
Business leaders and governments made rapid changes to the way they do business to continue functioning during COVID-19. But they may have introduced risks that they were not fully ready for when they enabled their employees to work remotely and virtually through various means including video and file sharing platforms. Their rapid action has kept their operations alive. But it has also introduced a host of new risks related to employee harassment, violence, wrongdoing, fraud, and insider threat. It will soon be time for investigators to help them sort out what went wrong and why.
By the end of this webinar, participants will:
- Learn the new risk drivers for virtual and remote workplace wrongdoing.
- Explore the extension of the “workplace” and employers’ harassment and violence protection obligations to their employees.
- Understand what types of investigations they will be called upon to do under the “new normal.”
