A workplace investigation is part of following a fair procedure. The legal test is that your investigation should be “reasonable in all the circumstances”. If a decision is found to be unfair in a disciplinary and grievance case there could be legal and financial consequences for your organisation.
There are plenty of benefits to employers of conducting quality workplace investigations including;
The skill and professionalism of the investigator is a vital component of conducting a fair investigation. If your investigators are not trained to a sufficient level and their skills not refreshed regularly, the outcomes for all parties will be impacted.
Our training is designed and delivered by employment lawyers who regularly examine the impacts of flawed investigations. They bring this experience to the training which keeps it both relevant and engaging for delegates.
Menzies Law’s workplace investigation training is a one-day intense course equipping attendees with the skills, strategies and confidence to set up, run and report on investigations in the workplace.
This training is suitable for anyone who may be required to conduct workplace investigations, including:
Our training includes investigations for serious disciplinary issues and allegations of bullying, harassment and discrimination (where if upheld, a formal warning or dismissal may result).
We use case studies, anecdotes of previous investigatory situations experienced by our lawyers to impart additional learning points and assist in embedding the training. The content and layout of a decent investigatory report will be focused on, and examples provided.
Our training is very interactive and engaging. Role-plays to provide the opportunity to learn and practice questioning skills and the general conduct of an investigatory meeting.
At the end of this course, you can expect your delegates to be highly trained workplace investigators able to assist you in making evidence-based, fair and objective decisions about resolving workplace issues. This may include decisions invoking disciplinary sanctions and dismissal recommendations/decisions.
