Why is having an investigation so important?
An investigation is the foundation to any procedure that requires them regardless of whether informal or formal. A poorly managed investigation could result in an unfair procedure and potential claim against the employer.
The purpose is to establish the facts and gain evidence which supports or refutes the allegations contributing to a fair procedure.
Some investigations will be lengthy, complex and very time consuming requiring a great deal of consideration of various different elements, however, some will be relatively straight forward either way consider calling us to discuss how we can support you in this process.
