Conducting Investigations

30 September, 2015, 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

How to conduct and manage a fair internal investigation, from gathering and assessing evidence through to presenting findings

There are many reasons for holding an internal investigation in the workplace. Investigations are held to clarify and establish the facts of an individual case and to assist in a decision as to whether there are grounds to call a disciplinary hearing, or dismiss a member of staff. Employers could be held liable if a poor investigation leads to an unfair dismissal.

This course covers key techniques, procedures and checklists to help ensure that you are considering all the critical factors and that you undertake the process in a fair and un-biased manner.

Delegates will develop valuable understanding of what the law requires and will learn key skills in the investigation processes, such as analysis and report writing.

Suitable For

HR and personnel professionals, line-managers, supervisors, heads of department, Monitoring Officers, Company Secretaries, employee representatives and legal practitioners.
