Price: $280.50


Presented by Samuel Vitaro

Investigating alleged employee misconduct offers countless opportunities for missteps. Anything but a consistent and thorough investigation can lead to poor disciplinary decisions that are ultimately overturned by a third party — and even worse, subject your agency to legal liability.

Learn — from a respected expert — how to avoid the pitfalls in discipline-related investigations.

Federal employment law expert and former MSPB AJ Samuel Vitaro delivers step-by-step guidance on how to conduct accurate, fair and timely investigations of misconduct charges while avoiding potential pitfalls. He discusses the rights of employees and their obligations to cooperate — a key step in getting investigations off to a good start. Mr. Vitaro outlines your agency's authority to conduct inquiries as well as the limits to that authority, ensuring that you don't act outside of your agency's legal parameters.

In just 90 minutes, you learn the essential steps in a misconduct inquiry, including how to:

  • Prepare and conduct interviews
  • Obtain sworn statements and put them into writing
  • Gather necessary documents
  • Analyze the evidence
  • Write a report with recommendations
  • And more!
