It is an unfortunate reality of business that, at some point, you may need to conduct a workplace investigation. It is important that, should this become necessary, you have clear policies and procedures in place and that any investigation is conducted in a lawful manner and in accordance with any governing legislation.
Our HR consultants can provide advice to help you ensure compliance or conduct the investigation on your behalf.
Well-conducted workplace investigations are crucial to the successful resolution of a complaint or the defence of a legal claim against your business.
How we can help
At Preston HR, our expert HR consultants will work with you to determine the appropriate steps to be taken regarding the complaint, including the investigation process required, the number of employees involved, and whether legal advice may be required.
If necessary, we can provide a range of investigation services for organisations that are dealing with allegations of inappropriate workplace behaviour, accidents, or broader systematic issues.
As well as the investigation itself, we can carry out a review of the policies and procedures your business has in place to manage complaints.
We can also review your internally conducted workplace investigation, providing advice or recommendations. This can help ensure internal workplace investigations are sound and will stand up to external testing.
