Gathering statements from employees is a delicate matter for many reasons. Many business leaders and HR executives have learned through experience that working with an outsourced professional can make the process smoother and protect the organization from potential liability.
RAS works with clients to gather documentation and evidence quickly and professionally. We understand that investigations of any kind create disruption in the workplace and do our best to do our work with the least impact to company culture.
RAS Consulting & Investigations provides a neutral and professional approach towards collecting evidence including witness testimony.
Why Are Witness Statements Needed?
Clients are often surprised to learn that workplace incidents leading to filed claims are rather common. Governing bodies and field experts recommend that organizations investigate every employee claim as it arises to avoid damages associated with negligence. Witness statements and interviews can be a large part of this work. Statements are collected for:
- Violations of company policy such as the Employee Handbook
- Suspicion of fraud
- Issues related to hostile work conditions
- Discrimination and Retaliation claims filed with the EEOC
- Workplace violence incidents

RAS Consulting & Investigations works with organizations to ethically and legally conduct employee interviews.
It is important to avoid creating additional liability during the process of investigation or legal preparation. Working with an expert and neutral Investigator will protect an organization from additional claims including hostility and retaliation.
