Untitled Document

Friday, November 4
1:45 - 2:45pm

 

Many investigators have a background in employment law and are familiar with the basic anti-discrimination statutes such as Title VII and FEHA. Fewer investigators are familiar with collective bargaining statutes, such as those governing most public employees. This session will discuss the most common labor law issues facing investigators, such as requests to have a representative present at interviews, confidentiality admonishments, and requests for the findings of an investigation. The presenters will discuss the basic legal framework governing these issues and discuss recommended approaches for investigators.
