Human Resource departments are at risk of being investigated by numerous government agencies including the NLRB, EEOC, HHS, ICE, DOL, LARA, UIA and more.

EEOC: Facing a Discrimination Complaint Investigation

EEOC investigations are the gateway to federal litigation. Investigations can be costly and time consuming with the potential for severe penalties.

Responding to a Charge of Discrimination requires a balanced approach that controls the scope of the investigation and meets the Agency's need for information. Join us for this 60-minute webinar for a better understanding of how to respond to an EEOC Charge of Discrimination.
NLRB: Handling an Unfair Labor Practice Charge Investigation
July 30, 2015 at 10:00 AM EDT      Time Zone Converter
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is on the move, investigating unionized employers; employers who are the subject of union-organizing attempts; and non-union work situations where unions are not even involved. Every employer - unionized and non-union - with at least two employees is a target.

An NLRB investigation starts with the filing of an unfair labor practice charge (ULP). They can be a trap for the unwary as many employers get trapped into admitting ULP violations. Join us for this 60-minute webinar to understand your rights and how to properly respond to an ULP charge.
