Why Should You Attend:

This webinar will discuss the intricacies of writing the critical final report of your investigation that may be discoverable 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 credibility of each interviewee, corroborating evidence and reaching a conclusion. The report is necessary in helping you determine credibility and corroborate evidence because it memorializes the complaint and the investigative process.

In order to write a thorough report, 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 to minimize your liability.
