Regulatory agencies and corporations across the country conduct investigations every day, delving into human rights complaints, employment standards violations, professional misconduct, false advertising, bankruptcy, fraud and general compliance. With the introduction of numerous large administrative monetary penalties, as well as new legislation for whistleblowers and harassment complaints, the courts will be looking for more scrupulous conduct of investigations. The Canadian Institute’s Conducting Fair Investigations is designed to bring together investigators from across sectors for two days of intensive training in the core skills of the job. Starting with a refresher of administrative law that applies in the regulatory context, the conference will move on to cover every phase of the investigation, from planning the investigation to interviewing, and from handling evidence to testifying. Plus, benefit from workshops on Search Warrants and Production Orders – Drafting, Obtaining, Executing and Defending; Effective Report Writing, and for the new person on the team benefit from our workshop on Getting Back to Basics: Understanding the Legal Framework for Regulatory Investigations – Beginners Class. Don’t miss this valuable learning opportunity!
