Investigations, Hearings and Appeal Services

There are a number of situations when you will need to carry out an investigation. For example, if you suspect an employee of misconduct or on receiving a grievance from an employee.

The purpose of any investigation is to establish the facts - what is most likely to have occurred in as fair and objective a way as possible. Employment Tribunals are often critical of employers who have not investigated thoroughly, fairly or in a timely manner.

for advice under no obligation on grievance investigations.

Dealing with Misconduct Accusations

Conducting an investigation can be challenging and one of the first practical challenges you will face is appointing an appropriate investigating officer, particularly when, wherever possible, the investigating officer should not be someone who is later involved in the disciplinary or grievance process.

We naturally recognise that this causes problems for small or medium sized businesses that simply don't have the necessary resources, or time, available in-house.

If you do not have the resources, expertise or are just too busy running your business to carry out investigations or hearings on your own, we can help.

Working with an external expert to manage the process has many benefits as well as making the investigation less stressful and time consuming for you.

We also offer support for those occasions where you may need to communicate a difficult message to your staff or have a sensitive issue to address.
