INVESTIGATIONS

We prevent the investigation from being investigated

 

We live in a world where the expectation to conduct investigations with the utmost diligence is ever-increasing. Mishandling investigations can be catastrophic for an organisation and for the people involved.

Our team has confidential expertise in carrying out investigations for:

  • Grievances
  • Employee conduct (Disciplinary Cases)
  • Whistleblowing Concerns
  • Customer Complaints
  • Parental Complaints
  • Compliance Issues
  • Bullying
  • Harassment
  • Safeguarding
  • Ethics
  • Bribery
  • Serious Incidents
  • and more…

 

We have a team of investigators with a range of background and specialties.  We are highly experienced practitioners, with a proven track record of carrying out complex, sensitive, or high-profile investigations in an efficient and timely manner.

Our investigators can conduct a completely independent investigation from start to finish, taking the stress and conflict away from you or your senior managers. When you are faced with serious misconduct issues, particularly at a senior level, it can be difficult to distance yourself and to determine the best placed person to undertake the investigation. Investigations can be time-consuming with sometimes numerous witnesses to interview, questions to prepare, evidence to review and ultimately presenting the case to a more senior level. This can also be daunting for you or your managers who do not have much experience of undertaking investigations previously.

Our expert independent investigators have first class knowledge of employment law, schools, Governance and HR in general. They can see the case through all the stages of investigation, presenting at a disciplinary hearing, appeal and ultimately appearing at an Employment Tribunal as a witness on your behalf. For schools, our independent investigators also advise on referrals to the National College for serious misconduct relating to teachers.

We understand that the key to a successful investigation is following a robust, transparent and accountable process. By working with us, an external third-party provider, you are indicating a higher level of impartiality and reassurance to all parties involved.
