    Improper documentation can make a difference in employee counseling, performance evaluations, terminations, unemployment challenges, Workers' Compensation, and other workplace issues.

    Christina S. Capizzi, former St. Louis County City Prosecutor, with the law firm of McMahon-Berger, will present information covering basic best practices for workplace investigations, including a basic structure for conducting investigations, methods of documentation, and insights to key issues they see in their practice (often long after an investigation has been completed) and suggestions for avoiding these issues when doing your own investigations.

    Christina practices in all areas of labor and employment law, with an emphasis in employment litigation. Prior to joining our firm, Ms. Capizzi spent over four years as an Assistant Circuit Attorney in St. Louis, Missouri where she represented the State as the first chair in over 20 jury trials.  Ms. Capizzi has extensive experience in all aspects of litigation, including motion, trial and appellate practice in state and federal trial and appellate courts, as well as representing clients before state and federal administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Department of Labor, and Missouri Commission on Human Rights. 

    In addition to litigating employment discrimination claims, Ms. Capizzi’s current practice includes advising employers on day-to-day matters in the area of labor and employment law with an emphasis on effectively managing risks associated with legal and regulatory issues arising under local, state, and federal laws, including Title VII and state discrimination laws, FMLA, ADA, FLSA and state wage and hour disputes, NLRA, and OSHA and Workplace Safety.

    Through a combination of education, training, and day-to-day counseling services, Ms. Capizzi
    helps her clients identify and understand their unique legal obligations and risks, implement
    policies and procedures to minimize the threat of employment claims, and strategically manage
    their workforce to be legally compliant while also achieving business goals and objectives. Ms.
    Capizzi also routinely conducts independent investigations on matters such as harassment,
    discrimination, and retaliation, and audit-based investigations on matters of wage and hour and
    general legal compliance.
