Nuts and Bolts of Conducting Effective Workplace Investigations Post-#MeToo
KSB Law offers a dynamic and comprehensive investigation training program to help entities of all sizes conduct effective investigations. In the wake of the #MeToo Movement, employers in the private, public and non-profit sectors are focused on this important subject.
The program was developed by attorney Kirsten Branigan, who has 20+ years’ experience in conducting investigations. Ms. Branigan frequently performs investigation training, presents to local and national audiences on investigations, and writes on the topic.
The target audience for this program is legal, compliance, human resources, senior leaders and managers involved in employment-related complaints and investigations, including, harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.
Employees are educated on the mechanics of conducting complaints from start to finish and addressing common issues that arise in workplace investigations.
Key areas include:
Landscape in the wake of the #MeToo Movement
Legal updates: EEOC and New State Laws
Overview on the Importance of Prevention and Remediation

Throughout the program, the audience assesses fact scenarios as they develop to test knowledge. Audience participation and interactivity is encouraged throughout the training.
The program runs approximately 4-5 hours but can be modified and tailored to fit business needs.
