Conducting Workplace Investigations of Harassment

With Todd Weisberg of Shields O’Donnell MacKillop

Friday, January 26, from 1:30pm to 3pm ET (please adjust for your time zone!)

Online webinar (details to be released closer to the date)

Special Member Learning Session (PACT members only)

All theatre companies have (or should have) comprehensive anti-harassment and respectful workplace policies. We hope all PACT member companies are presenting the first day speech as part of Not in Our Space! initiative. PACT and its community continue to promote zero-tolerance of harassment and bullying and promote safe and respectful workplaces.

You’ve Had a Complaint – Now What?

This 90 minute learning session with Todd Weisberg will talk you through how to respond to a complaint and the steps involved in conducting a workplace investigation, including how to: identify allegations of harassment; determine the order of interviews; conduct interviews; make credibility findings; decide who should be involved in the process; write the report; and, advise the parties of the results of the investigation.

About the Presenter:

Todd Weisberg articled with Shields O’Donnell MacKillop and joined the firm as an associate in 2012. He represents employers in all areas of employment and labour law, including wrongful dismissal litigation, employee discipline and termination, employment standards complaints, human rights complaints, labour arbitration, fiduciary litigation, and drafting employment policies and contracts. Todd frequently writes on topics related to employment law and has authored or co-authored articles for Canadian Lawyer In House Magazine,, Your Workplace, LexisNexis Practice Advisor, and the Federated Press. Todd has a strong interest in entrepreneurship and has worked for a variety of small businesses, including previously running his own construction business. As a result of these experiences Todd understands the practical issues that come with managing a workforce.

Shields O’Donnell MacKillop’s lawyers have extensive experience advising management and conducting investigations into harassment, discrimination and other workplace issues. They understand which issues can be sufficiently investigated in-house by HR and management, and which issues are better investigated by legal counsel. They provide specifically-tailored advice on how to investigate workplace issues, and, where necessary, have the expertise to conduct investigations and prepare investigation reports.

Registration for this session is now full. We hope to offer it again soon – details to come.
