Form W-4 has just seven lines but it is a fundamental part of the payroll process. In addition to information concerning the amount to withhold for income tax, the W-4 provides the employer with documentation of due diligence in soliciting employee name, Social Security Number, and address information.

While the employer is not responsible for assuring correctness of the employee’s claims, the employer is responsible for due diligence with regard to invalid forms and withholding according to the employee instructions provided by the form.

Building Trust and Breaking Down Barriers with Uncooperative and Hostile Interviewees-By AtoZ Compliance

Date: April 11th Tuesday
Time: 01:00 PM EDT | 10:00 AM PDT
Duration: 90 Minutes
Product Code: 300249
Level: Intermediate

Key Take Away :

This webinar on behavioural interview will help you in learning the art of human interaction that will benefit you to attain successful interview results where you have gained the trust of the interviewee and received truthful information.

Overview :

Most people do not want to be interviewed in relation to an investigation. This includes suspect, witnesses, possible witnesses, victims, and individuals that possess needed information. These individuals can display attitudes of resentfulness, reticence, animosity, wariness, reluctance, superiority, and hostility. The behavioral interview questions are used to achieve the objective of receiving truthful information to assist in the investigation. To reach the truth, it is imperative that a professional interviewer break down barriers, overcome objections, and build a level of trust with the interviewee.

Changing the attitude of the interviewee and building trust begins when the interviewer arranges the interview and continues during the introductory stages. Trust building continues during the preliminary rapport building competency based interview questions. Using alternate word choices, demeanour, tone of voice, hand gestures, and proxemics the interviewer can create an atmosphere of trust. Additionally, the interviewer can convey his or her objectivity and fairness with trust building opening statements. An interviewer who is objective and fair will earn a reputation that will assist in achieving the truth in future interviews.

Why Should You Attend :

Interviewing is not a peripheral task that is undertaken in the wake of conducting investigative interviews. Investigative interviewing is a critical component of an investigation. Investigative Information is gleaned from a variety of sources, i.e. computer data, documents, trace evidence, and of course people. It is people who commit crimes and possess information to assist in the investigative outcome. It is imperative that skilled interviewers are able to draw out the truth from people. Without a doubt the best investigators are the ones with the best situational interview questions.

If you are conducting investigative interviews, you might have received training in how to detect deceptiveness by evaluating the interviewees’ body language and non-verbal behaviour. However, most interviewers have not received training on dealing with uncooperative and hostile interviewees. Before you can begin evaluating indications of truthfulness or deceptiveness, you must overcome objections to being interviewed and change the attitude of interviewees who are not cooperative.

If you have not received training in behavioral based interview questions or behavioral interviewing, you will benefit from its detailed focus. If you have received similar training, you will benefit from this webinar’s unique approach. You will learn the motivation behind interviewees’ attitudes of resentfulness, reticence, animosity, wariness, superiority, and hostility. Since the main interview objective is reaching the truth, you will learn what motivates suspects, victims, witnesses, possible witnesses, and individuals that possess needed information to not be truthful or deceptive.
