Unravelling the Complexities of Workplace Investigations

When allegations of sexual or racial harassment, discrimination, bullying, or other serious wrongdoing or incompatibility are made, a timely and robust investigation by an experienced investigator is key to achieving a fair resolution for all parties involved.
 
The Workplace Investigations Workshop, facilitated in each city by leading national law firm Simpson Grierson, is an interactive training course designed to help you unravel the complexities of workplace investigations, taking place in:

Taking an in-depth look at the unique factors influencing investigations such as the seriousness of allegations, complexities of complaints, and consequences of failing to investigate - you will gain everything you need to know to ensure the investigation is procedurally fair, that independence is assured, that there is transparency, standards of proof, and that evidence is dealt with appropriately.
 
KEY THEMES:
  1. Planning and preparing for the investigation
  2. The investigation process 
  3. Finalising the investigation and next steps 
 
This masterclass is also being held in conjunction with the HR LAW MASTERCLASS CONFERENCE.
