Workplace Investigation Interviews â€” How to Get Critical Evidence from Your Witnesses
Presented by Allison West
Recorded on: Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Every day, human resources professionals and business managers investigate allegations of workplace misconduct, harassment or other potentially unlawful claims. The probability for litigation is high and a sound investigation can frequently reduce liability. Yet, all-too-often, investigators fail to get the critical information they need because they didn’t ask the right questions, weren’t prepared and didn’t know how to handle different types of witnesses.
