Webinar: Managing Workplace Investigations - a guide for employers

In this webinar we will explain how to manage a workplace investigation efficiently as well as covering some of the more complex issues which may arise

01 November 2022

With many organisations now keen to encourage a ‘speak up’ culture at work, employers may find they are facing more workplace investigations. Without tight management, investigations can take on a life of their own, creating extensive amounts of work and expense, as well as causing levels of anxiety to rise for those involved.

Our webinar, which is free to attend, will help you understand how to set up your investigation at the outset to keep it on track. We’ll also discuss how to approach many of the practical issues, including those which can arise in regulated sectors, before finishing by tackling some of the more complex situations we see cross our desk.

Topics covered include:

  • identifying whether an investigation is necessary,
  • pinpointing the issues to be investigated,
  • appointing an investigator,
  • gathering evidence (including witness evidence);
  • legal privilege; and
  • preparing an investigation report.

We will then consider some of the more complex questions which may arise including:

  • managing requests for witness anonymity
  • dealing with allegations outside of the workplace
  • handling investigations where there is police involvement or criminal proceedings

As this is a live webinar, there will also be the opportunity to ask questions at the end.
