Impartial, independent investigations into workplace disputes involving discipline or grievance are a cornerstone of good management and can avoid or minimise costly tribunal claims, save management time and maintain staff morale.
We can assist and support your managers in doing their own internal investigations or we can conduct investigations on your behalf where your internal resources are stretched and time is of the essence.
An impartial investigator can be seen more positively by the parties and witnesses as an unbiased, objective third party with no vested interest in the outcome. This can positively assist the investigation process and overcome barriers to communication with reluctant witnesses. This is particularly the case where the issues are highly sensitive perhaps involving whistleblowing, discrimination or bullying and harassment.
