OVERVIEW

As the saying goes - If it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen!

Documentation is essential for many legal issues, disputes, audits, meetings, and decision making, to name a few. Perhaps nowhere is it more critical than when documenting workplace investigations. Your documentation memorializes the entire investigation, it minimizes confusion, corroborates stories and evidence, demonstrates patterns of behavior and supports your final decision.

Investigative documentation is critical enough that it may prevent a lawsuit, or at least help in minimizing liability. Your documentation is evidence of action taken in response to a complaint.
