Being able to carry out a thorough investigation is an essential skill for managers. A defective investigation will render most dismissals unfair and increase the risks associated with discrimination claims.
A careful and thorough investigation into grievances, harassment complaints, disciplinary and capability issues is central to managing financial and reputational risk and is the foundation to defend any resultant tribunal claim.
Employers wishing to reduce risk, create and maintain a positive workplace culture and foster confidence in management need to have experienced and trained manager investigators available at short notice to conduct workplace investigations as the need arises. Employment tribunals expect employers to show that they have undertaken a fair and thorough investigation of complaints. This investigation can be time-consuming and complicated. However, if carried out early and correctly, an investigation should contain a problem and minimise distraction from the business.
