Among the many types of charges to investigate are those alleging discrimination, harassment, and bullying. Regardless of which one, all should require a professionally written report documenting not only your findings of fact but that your investigation was done objectively, and in a timely manner. So, you need to be prepared to not just conduct a proper investigation but to also show that you did. That means your report must be beyond reproach so it can withstand any appeal or challenge which may negatively reflect upon the integrity and credibility of your investigation!
