Conducting Workplace Investigations

Conducting Workplace Investigations

When does a complaint warrant an investigation? When would it be better to use mediation techniques to resolve the complaint? Does the allegation fall within the legal definitions of inappropriate behaviour or other forms of gross misconduct? Do you know which of the various Codes of Practice or laws to follow when conducting an investigation? Do you have a ‘best practice’ process for applying other methods of resolution before proceeding to a formal investigation?  

These and many more questions will arise throughout what can be a convoluted and frustrating process.

Our Conducting Workplace Investigations and Alternative Conflict Resolution Methods course will equip you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to guide employees through the most suitable conflict resolution methods, including an introduction to the key concepts of workplace mediation and how to conduct/participate in workplace investigations sensibly, fairly, and effectively in keeping with the legal and procedural
