Conducting personnel Investigations Workshop

Let’s face it, unpleasant workplace incidents are a fact of life. Whether it’s misconduct, poor performance, attendance issues, or harassment, these matters increase risk for the employing school district.  KASA Legal Counsel Wayne Young, J.D., brings his vast experience to this important training designed for anyone charged with managing these difficult and legally complicated matters.

A sound investigative process and product can not only reduce the frequency of these kinds of incidents, it can be the difference between nipping them in bud and preventing recurrence, and ending up in costly and lengthy litigation or administrative hearings. Workplace culture and productivity are enhanced by well-managed investigations.

Most school leaders have no formal investigative background. Too often, they have to scramble or “make do” when faced with a complex and unsettling workplace matter that requires immediate action. 

This workshop is designed to provide superintendents, personnel directors, principals, and other HR staff with tools and strategies to ensure that investigations are conducted lawfully and effectively.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Recognize when an investigation is called for
  • Develop an investigative plan
  • Recognize and preserve evidence
  • Conduct productive interviews
  • Preserve rights and confidentiality of parties and witnesses
