Getting investigation’s right first time.
It is important that your investigation is right first time to withstand any potential disciplinary, appeal or employment tribunal scrutiny. Fair, subjective, impartial and thorough are all common phrases used when describing a good investigation.
But, when the investigation is not done thoroughly, fairly, and subjectively, then the reputational and financial implications can be devastating to any business, such as this recent example reported in the Daily Mail.
In this regard, it is imperative that as an investigator you know your policies, listen to your parties carefully and are confident in your decision making process and that this is all successfully conveyed in your investigation report.
