QUESTION

Is an EEOC or IDHR fact finding like a trial?

A fact-finding is a much more informal process than a trial in a court of law.  The investigator and all parties are usually seated around a table in a small conference room.  The witness statements may be recorded but there will not be a court reporter present.  The investigator will ask questions of each witness and may limit the ability of attorneys present to ask separate questions or to make clarifying points.
