What is an Investigative Interview?
In this day and age of political correctness, as an employer or a co-worker in the workplace, you may need to protect yourself from false allegations of misconduct. These types of false allegations can cripple a business or co-workers reputation resulting in loss of profits or unemployment. False allegations of any sort(Civil or Criminal) may require some solid evidence to defend yourself.
The objective of any workplace investigation is to gather the facts so you can make an informed decision. How you interview those employees and witnesses can play a very crucial part, when gathering the evidence you require to defend yourself or business.
