Get all the facts to make better decisions for your business with our comprehensive workplace investigations. Edited

When an employer has allegations of behaviour such as bullying, harassment or discrimination, a workplace investigation may be required. Workplace Investigators can also conduct inquiries in situations where facts need to be established, such as allegations of serious misconduct. Another option that can be less disruptive to the workplace is a culture survey. This is an option we can discuss with you. Edite

What is the process for a workplace investigation?

Our investigation process begins with a high-level briefing, where we determine the scope of the investigation and agree on the process and timetable. Confidentiality and natural justice are key considerations.

Our role as the investigator is to obtain and determine all of the facts, which depending on the issue at hand, may include face to face interviews, review of documentation and policies and any other evidence that may support a finding. Where witness statements conflict with each other, we also need to make credibility findings.

The investigation concludes with a confidential investigative report, including our findings, observations and facts. We will supply recommendations if that is part of the scope agreed. We are not usually involved in any subsequent process, such as a disciplinary meeting.
