Allegations of harassment, discrimination and complaints of disruptive behaviours are some of the most challenging issues to deal with in a workplace. Knowing how to proceed to get the information you need while being sensitive to the needs of your employees is not always easy. The process itself must be fair and thorough so that you can respond appropriately.
We advise clients on how they should undertake an investigation in response to a variety of circumstances including allegations of bullying or psychological harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, inappropriate behaviour or misconduct. Our lawyers can also act as a neutral third party to conduct investigations in your workplace.
We provide communications for staff about the investigation process, prepare correspondence, conduct interviews, address confidentiality and prepare a report explaining the outcome reached.
