Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Investigative reports are often read by adversaries and not necessarily only internally within the organization. It is important that reports as an overview of the investigation show a logical factual representation of actions and decisions.

This presentation will guide anyone who performs workplace investigations to write their findings in a report such that it becomes a written presentation of the information discovered in their investigation. We will explain how the report used to document and communicate information to its readers can be of as high a quality as the investigation itself. At the end of this training, you would have gained the understanding needed to be able to write an investigative report that factually represents all facets of an investigation and shows that an employer took appropriate investigatory steps and made good decisions based on the information they discovered.

Topic Back Ground:

Why do we write internal investigatory reports? There is a multitude of laws and situations that require employers perform internal investigations to uncover facts and demonstrate they’ve met compliance obligations. A good investigative report factually represents all facets of such an investigation and shows an employer took appropriate investigatory steps and made good decisions based on the information they discovered.

Investigative writing’s purpose is to report investigatory findings to its reader. Without a good investigatory report, it may be difficult to show a quality investigation took place even if it did! Even worse, the wrong decisions can be made based on faulty representation of information.

Good investigative reports inform the reader to not only justify the employer’s decision making, but also demonstrating they did what a responsible employer acting in good faith would do, and if founded, took steps to rectify applicable conduct.
