If you are a Human Resource professional, Health & Safety Manager, Union representative, manager, supervisor or lead hand, you may find yourself responsible for conducting workplace investigations into problematic employee behaviour. Conducting a workplace investigation can be challenging in and of itself, never mind the heightened expectation of the Courts that workplace investigations must be done right. It is critical that anyone conducting a workplace investigation today have the essential knowledge and skills to conduct a prompt, thorough and fair investigation.
