Conducting investigations - digital event


Overview

This digital event looks at how to conduct and manage a fair internal investigation, from gathering and assessing evidence through to presenting findings.

The event will be delivered via Zoom, in two sessions, over two consecutive days. The duration of each session will be 3 hours.

The dates are:

  • Day 1 - 23rd of November 2021, 13:30 - 16:30
  • Day 2 - 24th of November 2021, 13:30 - 16:30

Business need

Investigations in the workplace are held to clarify and establish the facts of a case and help employers reach a decision.  For example, whether there are grounds to uphold a grievance, call a disciplinary hearing or dismiss a member of staff. 

Workplace investigations should be conducted fairly. Employers could be held liable if a poor investigation leads to an unfair dismissal claim.

Delivered via Zoom, this event will provide you with key techniques, procedures and checklists to help ensure that you are considering all the crucial facts and that you undertake the process in a fair and unbiased manner.

You will also gain valuable understanding of what the law requires and learn key investigation skills, such as analysis and report writing.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.

Suitable For
