Course Description

As the workplace becomes more litigious and our culture in the United States becomes more of a global atmosphere, the need to resolve problems becomes a significant factor.  Complaints, problems and accidents become daily issues.  Trained human resources professionals and operational supervisors can solve these issues through successful investigations that lead to problem solutions.
