What happens during the investigation process?

An impartial and appropriate factual record will be drafted by the investigating agency. The EEO Investigator will solicit declarations from the involved parties and document evidence to compile an accurate record of the claims. From this record, a third-party will determine findings on the claims made by the aggrieved party. An appropriate factual record is defined as one that allows a reasonable fact finder to draw conclusion on whether discrimination occurred.
