Your boss gives you a complaint to investigate. It is an internal complaint of discrimination, and a lot is riding on your investigation. Unfortunately, you are not a trained investigator - until now. Learn from the EEOC the basics of investigating discrimination cases involving hiring and discipline. At the April meeting you learn to identify the legal standards or proof, discover why practices are more important than policies, and learn the correct way to interview witnesses. This session will give you the tools you need to complete your own investigations.
