Having a sound factual basis for your workplace decisions is an essential part of being seen to act reasonably. Sometimes the facts are obvious, but more often they are unclear or disputed. Workplace investigations can be complicated, time-consuming and a significant distraction for any business. One party is almost bound to complain that the process has been too invasive or public and another that it was insufficiently thorough or is tainted by bias or prejudice. No wonder that managers often fail to ask the right questions or fight shy of getting involved in the first place.
Join us at our webinar when we will discuss the key legal and practical issues that arise when conducting workplace investigations, including:
- The role of an investigator – responsibilities at law
- Planning the investigation – scoping and objectives
- Evidence – what should you be looking for? How much investigation is required?
- Dealing with witnesses
- The investigation report – access, structure and presentation
- Findings and recommendations – points to consider
The main webinar presentation will last 50 minutes, followed by a 10-minute online question and answer session.
This webinar will be of interest to line managers, HR professionals and in-house counsel.
