Writing Investigative Reports: Evaluating Interviewee Credibility, Reaching Conclusions and Minimizing Harassment Liability
Investigative report writing actually begins from the very beginning of your investigation and continues throughout the process. This webinar will discuss the intricacies of writing the critical final report of your investigation that may be discoverable (all documents that must be provided to opposing counsel in case of a lawsuit) if an employee files a formal charge with the EEOC or your state’s human rights department, or if you are sued. A number of critical actions are required as part of your investigation.
These include determining interviewee credibility, corroborating evidence and reaching a conclusion. For investigative report writing, investigators must make a decision as to whether the investigated misconduct was a violation of any laws or policies and present these findings in an objective, accurate and concise manner.
An in-depth comprehensive investigative report memorializes the investigation, and can be evidence that an investigation actually occurred, which helps you in minimizing liability.
