HR Seminar: Investigations – Getting it right – Milton Keynes – 22 October 2019

Investigations – Getting it Right

It is crucial to carry out the investigation stage of your disciplinary process correctly – if you get it wrong it can make any resulting dismissal unfair and/or could lead to allegations of discrimination.

This talk will give you a practical overview of how to conduct an internal investigation as part of a disciplinary process. We will look at various case studies giving you practical tips and advice on how to conduct an investigation and avoid some common pitfalls.

The talk will cover:

  • A reminder on unfair dismissal law, ACAS Code of Practice and Company Policies
  • Whether there is a need to suspend during an investigation
  • Best Practice – the extent of the investigation, collating evidence, witnesses and record keeping
  • What happens when a grievance is raised during the disciplinary process?
  • Dealing with sickness absence during the investigation

Who should attend:

Aimed at HR professionals, business owners/directors and managers with HR responsibility.
