An internal investigation is an important mechanism an organization can use to address an allegation of wrongdoing, determine legal liability, identify individuals or parties with culpability, comply with regulatory requirements, develop corrective measures and enhance operational efficiencies. Buckner is pleased to continue its blog series highlighting best practices, strategies and techniques that can be used by organizational leaders and counsel during an internal investigation. Today’s post will cover documentation of internal investigations.
An organization conducting an internal investigation should ensure all aspects of the process are documented by its investigator, including comprehensive investigative reports, interview statements, memoranda and organized files. An effective documentation of the internal investigation will assist with rebutting challenges concerning the process, evidence and other issues.
