Nuts and Bolts of an Effective
Workplace Investigation

presented by Adam McMahan


Workplace investigations can encompass everything from harassment, discrimination, to theft and drug use. Employers need to have the right tools or “nuts and bolts” in place to conduct a result driven investigation.

Which includes:

  • When to investigate
  • Selecting the investigator
  • Planning the investigation
  • Important issues: confidentiality and retaliation
  • The investigation process: interview order, lines of questioning, collection of evidence
  • Credibility assessment
  • Summary reports
