The Science of Workplace Investigations™

January 31, 2018, 9 am to 4 pm
Arlington, VA

When investigating a “he said/she said” case of sexual harassment or other alleged misconduct, are you using scientifically-validated methods to interview witnesses, assess their credibility, and reach a legally defensible conclusion?

Workplace investigators often receive training on “best practices” for investigations. Unfortunately, over the past 15 years, scientists have found that much of the conventional wisdom on how to effectively interview witnesses and determine truthfulness is incorrect. At the same time, courts have found companies liable for using scientifically unproven interviewing and other investigative techniques in workplace investigations.

In this seminar from former U.S. Department of Justice attorney Michael Johnson, you will learn about the hundreds of research studies that scientists have conducted on how to best interview witnesses and assess credibility. You will learn how to apply these scientifically-validated methods to your investigations. By examining videos and case studies, you will learn:
  • How to utilize the “Cognitive Interview,” which is the most widely researched interviewing technique in the world
  • How many common beliefs about spotting deception are incorrect
  • How to apply research-based methods for detecting signs of deception and truthfulness
  • The legal requirements for workplace investigations
  • A 6-step process for writing clear and concise investigative reports
