This webcast will introduce the concept of the cognitive interview and show how it can be of benefit to HR professionals and other managers when conducting the more complex disciplinary and grievance investigations. It will be of particular interest in disciplinary and grievance cases with elements of bullying, harassment, discrimination, theft, assaults, drug dealing and serious health and safety violations plus any other serious issues of misconduct.
Cognitive interviewing has been shown to produce up to 40% more accurate evidence from eye witnesses, even when events occurred some time ago. It also reduces the need for costly re-interviewing and can result in a higher quality evidential base from which to make a disciplinary decision thus reducing the likelihood of appeals and even costly litigation

Find out how best to coordinate between safety and HR activities, to avoid prosecution under these statutes, and how to defend against claims when a complaint is filed.
This presentation will cover how to structure your incentive and disciplinary programs to avoid scrutiny by the government, how to document adverse actions properly, and how to address situations involving "bulletproof" employees in a legally sound manner.
The remedies available to whistleblowers and unique aspects of some laws - such as "temporary reinstatement" provisions that may require actual or economic reinstatement while a case is pending - will also be discussed.
This presentation provides an in-depth look at the issues employers face on a daily basis regarding the Internet, e-mail usage, and social networking tools.

The legal implications of social media law are both new and constantly evolving, and it is important for your organization to have an understanding of the impact they can have on your business, both for legal reasons and clear employee communications.

Workforce Planning & Analytics (WP&A) is now a non-negotiable. This is true no matter the size of the company, it’s growth, industry, geography, or strategy. The risks of not doing it are now unacceptably high. Others are doing it, and they are unquestionably outcompeting others for talent and in achieving business results. More and more case studies are now validating this assertion. The question for many now is: How do I start? For others it's: How do I get to the next level? For still others it’s: What’s most appropriate for my organization? Should we build internally? Should we go with a vendor? Should we outsource some of our analytical needs? These and other questions will be answered, as will arguably the most crucial one: What’s my best next step?
The session will delve into proven frameworks like the Data-to-Change Process, the Three Workstreams, the HR Linkage Model, and the Workforce Planning Model. It will also explore leading-edge thinking around Talent Strategy Formulation, Measurement, and Management. In the end, by attending this session you will be more educated on Workforce Planning & Analytics, inspired to advance your organization’s journey, and be clear on how to leverage data and other assets to generate workforce insight on an ongoing basis.
