The Investigation of Unwitnessed Allegations
The investigation of unwitnessed events – the classic “He-Said/She-Said” scenario – are some of the most difficult and complex matters workplace investigator’s can be asked to undertake. To do so successfully requires sophisticated planning, preparation, interviewing and reporting skills.
In particular, the credibility building blocks must be established during an investigation so that the necessary analysis and assessment of the relative credibility of the parties’ evidence can be undertaken to allow sound, logical and defensible findings to be made by the investigator.
In this webinar with John Farren, we will discuss the common problems that investigators encounter when investigating unwitnessed workplace allegations and his firm’s new eLearning training course “Getting Beyond He-Said/She-Said”.
