Join us for our Investigations Series, a program where our UK labor and employment team will share best practices to help employers develop strategies when receiving and handling workplace investigations, and discuss key legal considerations that may need to be addressed.

We will cover various key themes including conducting workplace investigations locally and globally, handling grievance and disciplinary proceedings, designing and implementing risk management strategies, and managing employment tribunal litigation. The first webinar of the series will cover best practices for conducting investigations.

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:

  • The importance of clear reporting channels and investigation protocols
  • Immediate action points—steps to protect the company and reporting to third parties
  • Legal privilege—the importance of privilege in investigations and the interface with other employment processes and procedures
  • Planning—scoping and timing
  • Evidence collection and witness interviews—best practices
  • Investigation Reports—key points to consider
  • Common challenges—overlapping whistleblowing, grievance and disciplinary processes
  • Key points for handling international and cross-border investigations
  • Practical issues from running an investigation remotely with an increasingly mobile and remote workforce
  • Market trends—the rise of respect issues in the workplace and reputational risk
