Managing Investigations and Disciplinaries (Course)
1
6 October 2018 (09:30 – 12:30) / Altrincham

Issues at work can come to your attention in a variety of ways, either via a customer complaint, a staff grievance or simply it may be that you have become aware of underperformance or misconduct yourself. It is often difficult to address these issues in the workplace or know how best to stop them from reoccurring.

The key to dealing with any issue is first to establish the facts and carry out a thorough investigation. Employment cases are similar in many ways to criminal cases, with the investigation being a key part of the overall process. In the same way that a flawed police investigation can lead to a case being thrown out of court or a defendant walking free, an inadequate investigation in the workplace can undermine the disciplinary process. This may mean that employees are let off the hook, or in the worst-case scenario, employers may unfairly dismiss an employee and be at risk of a tribunal claim.
