Properly handled investigations before implementing a disciplinary process are essential.
For example, in an unfair dismissal claim brought by an employee sacked for misconduct, your business would need to show that you had undertaken a reasonable investigation into the incident to successfully defend the claim.
Our team of lawyers and HR professionals can work with you and your team to co-ordinate the investigation. Based on your site, we can help your managers conduct the whole process from collecting information to interviewing witnesses. Alternatively we can act as advisers to your team. We can review the scenario with you and suggest questions and lines of enquiry, help prepare the investigation report and consider with you whether there is a need to implement the disciplinary procedure.
