Rebecca Stephens to moderate the Bar Association of San Francisco CLE program, "Workplace Investigations in the Age of #MeToo."

Overview:
The public has taken a renewed interest in workplace investigations in light of highly publicized current events including the #MeToo movement.

This panel will discuss how to conduct an appropriate investigation in this ever-changing landscape, ways to mitigate risk through workplace investigations, and litigation strategies for challenging or defending an investigation.

Topics
• New developments in workplace investigations
• Best practices for investigating alleged harassment and misconduct
• Challenging or defending workplace investigations in litigation
