Employee disputes and misconduct occur in every workplace. Often the allegations of bullying, harassment, discrimination, fraud or other misconduct are unpleasant, complex and very personal, bringing serious consequences for those involved.
Many employers do not have the sophisticated resources required to conduct an impartial, efficient and timely investigation. To conduct a workplace investigation, a keen understanding is required of investigation procedures, privacy obligations, defamation law and safety and mental health issues.
Outsourcing an investigation to a law firm provides confidence the process is procedurally fair, impartial and ethical.
The employment lawyers at Parke Lawyers have significant experience in conducting challenging workplace investigations and preparing reports that provide a way forward for employers. We also have access to appropriate partners, including forensic accountants, computer forensic investigators and private investigators.
