An employee files a complaint.
Now, you are expected to conduct a timely and legally compliant investigation.
There’s just one major problem. You’ve probably received little or no training about:
(1) how to do an investigation;
(2) who to interview;
(3) what questions to ask;
(4) what to avoid; and/or
(5) what to do once the investigation is complete.
Not to mention, investigations are costly, disruptive, and time consuming.
No need to try and figure this out on your own.
You've found the solution!
This course "ACE Your Workplace Investigations" teaches you my complete, proven step-by-step system for effectively conducting legally compliant workplace investigations.
Register now or keep reading to learn more.
Sooner or later it happens: the phone rings and it's an employee with a complaint.
“Who has time for this?” you’re thinking. You do. You must make time.
- Investigations are disruptive, costly, and time consuming.
- It can be tough identifying what issues to investigate.
- You’re unsure how to evaluate the information gathered.
- Asking the wrong questions – no matter how innocent the motives – could cost you.
Well guess what?
I wrote this book and designed this course for people like you who want to do the right thing to investigate employee complaints but might not know exactly how.
This is not just another CYA course. I empower you to implement and enforce policies to prevent lawsuits rather than invest time and company profits defending them.
The "ACE Technique" is my complete, proven step-by-step system that I have used for over 20 years to help my clients save millions of dollars.
Using my ACE Technique:
- You will minimize legal risk and save money by effectively conducting legally compliant workplace investigations.
- You will also create a safe, inclusive, harmonious work environment by developing and nurturing employee trust; and
- You will reframe your thinking about employee complaints and workplace investigations – focusing on the benefits not the burdens.
But don't just take it from me.

“As an attorney who has practiced employee-side employment law for more than 30 years, it is refreshing to see a book dedicated to effective workplace investigations.

If employers follow the easy step-by-step process, they can improve workplace morale while avoiding the disastrous publicity of a #MeToo situation.”D. Ballman, Attorney

Did you know?
The average cost to defend a single plaintiff employment claim is $160,000.00. On average those matters take 316 days to resolve.
Do you have that kind of time and money to expend on employee complaints?
If not, you are in the right place.
How you handle employees complaints frames their perceptions of you, the company and the process. And probably more importantly, what they do next!
You're job is to create an environment where the risk of lawsuits and bad press is virtually non-existent.
Conducting legally workplace investigations is one sure-fire way of doing that.
None of this is just theory.
