Duration: This is normally a two-day class (6.5 hours on each day). The second day can be a half-day session for smaller classes (less than 20 attendees) or if the employer wishes to condense the mock exercise.
Class Size: Approximately 20 – 25 is best. However, smaller and larger class sizes can be conducted to meet the employer’s needs. For over 30 attendees, it may be necessary to enlist a representative of the employer to assist with the mock exercises on Day Two.
Audience: Managers and supervisors who have investigation responsibilities or who may have such responsibilities in the future.
This class covers the same material as the “without mock investigation” course on Day One. At the end of Day One, a hypothetical workplace complaint is presented and employees are given time to prepare an actual investigation to be conducted on Day Two. Attendees work individually at first, but then combine into teams for final preparation and conducting the investigation. On Day Two, the investigation is conducted and discussed.
