Impartial Agency Investigation

Impartial Agency Investigation

Definition

The principle that a government agency’s investigation into a complaint should be unbiased and sufficiently developed for a fact-finder to reasonably draw conclusions about the case. For example, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is directed in 29 C.F.R. § 1614.108 to investigate employment discrimination complaints by “develop[ing] an impartial and appropriate factual record . . . that allows a reasonable factfinder to draw conclusions as to whether discrimination occurred.”
