Employers are often presented with situations or accusations that require investigation to circumvent potential legal liability. In some circumstances, an internal investigation may become the employer’s best defense in any subsequent litigation, and the integrity of the investigation process will be examined.

To avoid personal and corporate liability risks, it is imperative for in-house counsel and human resources professionals to arm themselves with knowledge of the latest legal trends, risks and requirements that directly impact the effectiveness and legal compliance of an investigation. Please join William Dugan, a partner in our Employment Whistleblower Team, along with guest speaker Scott Koch, Assistant General Counsel for JPMorgan Chase, for for a discussion on the strategic actions an employer should consider when planning and conducting an internal investigation. Additonally, Seyfarth Partner Amanda Sonneborn will provide a National Labor Relations Act perspective.

In this fast-paced and informative program, our presenters will investigate key issues and provide practical solutions, including:
