Race-Based Allegations in the Workplace: How to Effectively Conduct an Internal Investigation

October 29, 2020

As more and more companies strive to create a work environment in which ‎all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, a company’s response to a claim of racial ‎discrimination is more important than ever. Conducting a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation is ‎paramount but may not be straightforward. Many companies are not aware of the ramifications of not ‎handling an investigation properly. ‎

This webinar will explore the intricacies of conducting an internal investigation based on an allegation of ‎racial discrimination, race-based harassment and hostile work environments as well as retaliation claims. ‎When faced with such claims, boards of directors, management, human resources and in-house counsel ‎at companies of all sizes must investigate thoroughly in order to understand the facts needed to move ‎forward. ‎

Allison O'Neil will lead the discussion and will be joined by Laura Hughes, Founder & Principal at Gusto Partners LLC, and Kathryn Marble, ‎Global Employment Counsel at Nuance Communications, ‎who will share their perspectives and insights.‎
