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.
