Employers often encounter charges of discrimination filed by applicants or employees.  A government agency that investigates those charges is the South Carolina Human Affairs Commission (SCHAC).  During our annual “mock” meeting in September, SCHAC will conduct a mock investigation of a discrimination charge, from start to finish, with the help of our SHRM actors.  Learn what to do or not do during this engaging afternoon!
