Global Workplace Investigations: A Legal and Cultural Guide | Sessions
Every employer will need to conduct a workplace investigation at some point, and an effective investigation can make the difference between a litigation-free resolution and a painstakingly long and costly lawsuit. This difference is amplified when the investigations have to take place in a foreign country due to vastly varying legal restrictions and cultural norms. This session explains the different approaches employers need to take when conducting workplace investigations outside of the United States. Topics will cover sexual harassment, discrimination, mental health issues, addiction, and workplace violence investigations and how these various type of investigations fit into the legal and cultural frameworks of foreign jurisdictions.
- Understanding the legal obligations and potential liabilities of conducting workplace investigations in foreign countries.
- Analyzing jurisdiction-specific issues arising out of global investigations.
- Recognizing different cultural expectations and formulating the most sensible approaches.
- Maintaining integrity of investigations
