Investigations Training

This will be a practically focused session considering the best practice around undertaking a disciplinary or grievance investigation. We will cover the key things that HR ought to be aware of when setting up and supporting an investigation, and what HR should be contributing to the process whilst not crossing the line into Ramphal overly-interventionist territory. We will look at a variety of issues such as when to suspend, how to avoid ‘mission creep’ and how to deal with reluctant witnesses. This session will be ideal for those who are new, or returning to, this area of HR work or want to increase their confidence to be able to better support their organisation.

Topics covered:

  • The legislative framework
  • Setting the scope and avoiding mission creep
  • Picking the right investigator
  • Conducting effective interviews
  • Dealing with reluctant witnesses
  • Reviewing the report
