In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the important roles court reporters play in wrongful termination depositions.

At Phoenix Deposition Services, we’re proud to offer real-time court reporter services for numerous case types throughout Phoenix, including for wrongful termination depositions of any sort. In today’s part two of our series, we’ll go over a few of the other ways court reporters provide value within the realm of wrongful termination.
Perspectives of Everyone Involved
There will often be multiple perspectives involved in a wrongful termination claim, from the employee who was terminated to the HR representative who conducted the termination. A court reporter can help capture all of these perspectives in a clear and concise manner, ensuring that nothing is lost in translation.
This becomes especially important when multiple people are giving testimonies, as it can be difficult to keep track of who said what. With a court reporter there to capture every word, the case will be more streamlined. This can make it much easier for everyone involved–especially if there are multiple people giving testimonies on each side of the argument.
Documenting Outbursts or Poor Behavior
In some cases, wrongful termination depositions become emotional affairs. In these instances, it’s crucial to have a court reporter who can document any outbursts or poor behavior. This information can be used later on as evidence, and can help to paint a more accurate picture of the case.
In fact, the court reporter’s documentation can be used to prove any sort of momentary lapse or fit of anger, so it is important that they are able to catch every single detail. There are many cases where the actual result has been impacted directly by the court reporter’s presence, simply because they were able to document the moment of poor behavior.
Another vital role of a court reporter within any wrongful termination deposition is their ability to confirm or deny any contradictions or differences in testimony. Case files are often long and complicated, and it is easy for small details to get lost along the way.
A court reporter can help sort through all of this information, ensuring that nothing gets missed. They are trained not only to document every word said throughout any deposition, but also to cross-reference with previous testimonies to look for any contradictions. This can be an extremely valuable tool in any wrongful termination case.
