Share |
Untitled Document

Saturday, November 5
11:35am - 12:10pm

There is ongoing and often lively discussion among workplace investigators about the best way to accurately capture information provided during interviews. Handwritten notes, typewritten notes, statements, electronic recordings and other methods are supported through personal preference or mandated in some circumstances. This presentation will examine case studies, legal cases and contemporary research to provide a very strong case that interviews in workplace investigations should all be electronically recorded, at the very least with audio recording.
