Industrial Psychology Expert Witnesses
What is an industrial psychology expert witness?
Industrial psychology expert witness candidates may be a member of a industry organization, such as the American Psychological Association (APA), the Association for Psychological Science (APS), or the National Alliance of Professional Psychology Providers (NAPPP). In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the lead attorney may request a psychology or psychiatry professional with prior expert witness testimony experience. An expert witness needs to not only have expertise in the subject, but an expert witness must also possess the ability to explain evidence to a juror.
What types of cases require an industrial psychology expert witness?
Industrial psychology expert witnesses can provide litigation support for cases involving human factors and workplace safety, human resources, harassment by management, and/or employment discrimination.
