Whether you investigate workplace misconduct or major crimes, the interview is a staple in the investigative process. It’s often the most important activity for gathering evidence and supporting a conclusion. But even a well-conducted investigative interview will lose its credibility if it’s not well documented in a clear and succinct interview report.
