    Misconduct in the News: McDonald's

    Misconduct in the News: Chipotle

    Misconduct in the News: Chipotle

    Misconduct can be perpetrated by or against any gender. Don't allow gender biases to influence your view when you receive an allegation. Also, action speaks louder than words. Your policy only carries the worth of your action.

    Misconduct Thoughts: Free Speech in the Workplace

    Misconduct Thoughts: Free Speech in the Workplace

    Your company has policies. Your company has values. What speech you allow or disallow is your choice, but it is important that you apply and enforce the policy equally. Disagreement does not always equal offensive just because someone says it is.

    Misconduct in the News: Dark Horse Comics

    Let's talk about how Dark Horse Comics went from referring to Scott Allie's tendency to bite others as a joke to finally being forced to take appropriate disciplinary action. Why was he allowed to continue in his job for so long when his bad behavior was so well known in the industry?

    Misconduct in Real Life: Bryan - Fired for Being Homeless

    Misconduct in Real Life: Bryan - Fired for Being Homeless

    Listen to Bryan tell his story about how his employer received an allegation that he had engaged in misconduct, how they conducted an investigation, and how they found that he not only did not engage in the alleged behavior, but that the allegations were made up. Unfortunately, when the investigation failed to implicate Bryan, they found another excuse to fire him, the fact he was without a permanent residence.

    If I Were In Charge: You're Not As Good As You Think You Are

    If I Were In Charge: You're Not As Good As You Think You Are

    No matter how long you have been conducting investigations, you can still find ways to improve. Your experience is only as good as the training you received. You may sitting on a ticking time bomb of case files without even knowing it. In this episode I talk about my observations of common mistakes and failings after reviewing hundreds of cases. It's not just the other guy who needs this. You aren't as good as you think you are. 

    And if you feel yourself getting angry or defensive, you are in the right place.
