Event Description

It All Starts with Documentation: Focus on Credibility

The thoroughness of your Title IX investigative report can be the linchpin in protecting your institution from a costly lawsuit judgment. Human Resource professionals and Title IX Coordinators must know how to conduct an investigation, as well as how to document and write a thorough final report. You have a tremendous responsibility to your institution and to ensure employees’ civil rights are not compromised. Get the know-how you need to live up to this hefty responsibility.

Learn from HR and management/leadership expert Dr. Susan Strauss, BA, RN. In this session, you’ll discover how to put together a comprehensive, precise, and well-executed investigative report, starting from the very beginning of your investigation and continuing throughout the entire process. Unearth the intricacies of writing the critical final report, which may be discoverable if an employee files a formal charge with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) or your state’s human rights department—or if your institution is sued.

After attending this audio event, you will have an in-depth understanding of the critical elements in an investigative report, including what you must document regarding the credibility of each witness, the target, and the accused. You will walk away with the knowledge and tools you need to integrate all the critical elements in an investigative report. Also, you will learn how to corroborate evidence and draw conclusions—all with the goal of minimizing your institution’s liability.

Session Highlights

This program will teach you how to:

  • Identify the elements of an investigation that require documentation and the critical elements of an investigative report.
  • Determine the credibility of each interviewee, corroborate evidence, and reach a conclusion.
  • Decide whether the investigated misconduct was a violation of any laws or policies.
  • Present your findings in an objective, accurate, and concise manner.
  • Memorialize the investigation in an in-depth, comprehensive investigative report to minimize your institution’s liability.
  • Avoid making common mistakes, such as overlooking certain elements in documentation and the final report.
  • Take required follow-up actions (because the final report isn’t really the end of the investigative process).
