The Workplace Investigations Masterclass is an interactive training course which will unravel the complexities of workplace investigations. 
 
Workplace investigations are certainly complicated. There are unique factors influencing investigations to be realised - the seriousness of allegations, complexities of complaints, and consequences of failing to investigate.   
 
Then there are issues surrounding how to conduct an investigation, determine scope, and ensure appropriate terms of reference are defined and adhered to. Setting expectations of people involved in investigation processes is also a delicate balance 
 
Ofcourse, the investigator also needs to ensure the investigation is procedurally fair, that independence is assured, that there is transparency, there are standards of proof, and that evidence is dealt with appropriately.  
 
When allegations of sexual or racial harassment, discrimination, bullying, or other serious wrongdoing or incompatibility are made, a timely and robust investigation by an experienced investigator is key to achieving a fair resolution for all parties involved.
