The Intricacies of Writing and Documenting the Critical Final Report of Your Investigation

Writing the investigative report actually begins from the very beginning of your investigation and continues throughout the process. But not all human resources professionals know how to do an investigation and how to document and write a final report, which is critical to ensure employees' civil rights are not compromised. Knowing how to write a formal investigative report may save a tremendous financial burden on the organization because an investigation that is not documented basically did not occur.

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. 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.

This webinar by expert speaker Dr. Susan Strauss, RN, ED.D 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.
