Workplace Investigations

Workplace Investigations

This quarter, the focus of the Primas HR Hub will be on everyday issues employers are regularly faced with, such as disciplinaries and grievances. We understand that these types of issues can be tricky to navigate, but it is critical that employers deal with them in the right way, to avoid any potential claims.

We are moving our Primas HR Hub events to an online format via Teams, with the first of these set to provide everything employers and managers need to know about conducting workplace investigations, which is often the first step in the process.

The upcoming webinar will provide an understanding of the legal requirements for conducting investigations, together with covering practical aspects and best practices in order to handle them effectively.

We will aim to provide those attending with key techniques and checklists to ensure that all the facts of the case are considered, in a fair and unbiased manner, so they leave with the confidence of how to conduct a robust investigation effectively.

Here’s what we intend to discuss in this first session:

  1. The importance of a fair and consistent approach
  2. The best person to conduct the investigation
  3. The role of the investigator
  4. Legal considerations and principles
  5. How to deal with evidence and conducting effective witness interviews
  6. Writing the investigation report
  7. How to deal with requests for anonymity
  8. Understanding the recommendations which can be made
