Reach an impartial conclusion

Support with Workplace Investigations

Workplace investigations are fact-finding exercises following allegations of a misdemeanour. They can be complex but support from Waddington Brown can provide the expertise needed to reach a successful and impartial conclusion. HR investigations are held to collect information and evidence relating to an allegation, to determine what happened and establish whether a company policy has been violated. Many workplace investigations stem from allegations of misconduct or bad behaviour such as making threats, poor time keeping or unjustified absenteeism.

Guarantee objectivity at every stage

Why HR investigations are important

Making decisions on a workplace disciplinary or grievance without completing a good investigation can expose the organisation to the risk of legal action. However, a properly conducted investigation will enable the employer to make an informed decision on what actions to take. The team at Waddington Brown can ascertain if there is a case to answer and, as an independent party, will not compromise either the company or the employee. An external investigator can ensure objectivity especially where the case involves complex matters, sensitive issues or senior members of staff.
