Investigation Training Institute – Association of Workplace Investigators

The quality of an investigation can easily become the deciding factor in resolving an internal complaint or become the solid evidence you need if your case goes to court.  Of course, your investigation can also put a smile on a plaintiff”s attorney’s face if not done properly.  At the end of the day, you need to conduct an effective, impartial, good faith investigation.

The Association of Workplace Investigators (AWI) is an association focused on promoting and enhancing workplace investigations.  As an AWI Board Member, I am happy to announce  AWI is holding its first Training Institute outside of California for workplace investigators May 4-8, 2015 in Mystic, Connecticut.
