Workplace Investigations in the Age of #MeToo

Speaker: Steve Peltin, Steve DiJulio, Alicia Feichtmeir, Roger Nyhus and Heidi de Laubenfels

Workplace investigations must be thorough, unbiased and timely, requiring precision work at every stage of the process. The evolution of the #MeToo movement has applied increasing scrutiny to workplace investigations, including whether, how and when to investigate – and key considerations related to communications and potential publicity arising from #MeToo and other workplace allegations. On Tuesday, November 27th at noon, please join Foster Pepper’s Employment & Labor law team, along with guest speakers Roger Nyhus and Heidi de Laubenfels of communications firm Nyhus, for a complimentary webinar exploring some of the complexities of this contemporary topic, including:

  • Deciding whether and when to conduct an investigation
  • Selecting an investigator
  • Planning the investigation 
  • Assessing privilege and confidentiality considerations
  • Conducting witness interviews 
  • Ensuring against retaliation, and other post-investigation follow-up steps
  • Understanding specialized public employer considerations
  • Planning and coordinating internal and/or external communications, if needed
  • Responding to unexpected publicity
