Frequently Asked Questions

A workplace investigation is a process where an impartial third party investigates complaints made by employees in the workplace. The investigator will review evidence, interview witnesses and gather information to assess whether there has been any misconduct. If misconduct is found, the investigator will make recommendations on how to address the issue. There are a few reasons you might want to use an external workplace investigator:

  • You want to be sure that the investigation is seen as objective and unbiased.
  • You don’t have the internal resources to conduct a thorough investigation.
  • The allegations are serious and you want to avoid any potential legal liabilities.

Our workplace lawyers can advise you on a range of employment law matters, including:

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Redundancy
  • Workplace bullying and harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Employment contracts
  • Restraint of trade agreements

We understand that dealing with workplace issues can be complex and time-consuming. That’s why we offer a comprehensive workplace investigations service to help you resolve these matters quickly and efficiently. We have a team of experienced workplace investigators who can assist you with:

  • Conducting workplace investigations
  • Drafting investigation reports
  • Providing advice on the outcome of workplace investigations

We also offer a broad range of other employment law services for employers, including:

If you need assistance with a workplace issue, please contact us today. Our experienced team offers a FREE initial consultation, so you can get the advice and guidance you need to resolve your matter.

The first step is to have workplace policies and procedures in place that employees are aware of and understand. These should include a code of conduct that sets out expected standards of behavior, as well as clear consequences for breaching the code. 

Employers should also provide regular training on workplace policies and procedures so that employees know what is expected of them. If there are complaints of inappropriate behavior, it is important to investigate them promptly and fairly. This may involve interviewing witnesses and the person accused of the behavior.

Depending on the outcome of the investigation, disciplinary action may be taken. This could range from a warning to dismissal from employment. Exit interviews can also be useful in identifying workplace issues that may need to be addressed.

If you are an employer who needs assistance with workplace investigations, or any other employment law matter, please contact our office for an initial consultation.
