Description

Rumors are flying that a subordinate is sleeping with her boss to get promotions. An employee tells a manager off-site and over lunch that she is being harassed at work. You receive a complaint, but can't start the investigation immediately. This CLE program will explain your legal obligations under these circumstances and provide you with a firm understanding of when the duty to investigate kicks in, when you need to start the investigation, as well as how long the investigation can take.
