Independent Investigation, Disciplinary and Appeal Processes
Employers have a right and a duty to appropriately manage their employees. Appropriate management is a challenging process and there is no such thing as a one size fits all rule for each scenario that arises in the workplace. We take a partnership approach with our clients and guide them through this process. Advice at this time can be effective to ensure the employment relationship moves forward in the appropriate way. If litigation arises, careful management can position our clients to rigorously defend the proceedings.
We frequently act as external independent parties in processes such as investigations, disciplinaries and appeals. In circumstances where the business conducts these processes using internal personnel we are on hand to provide advice and guidance at all stages to ensure that processes are followed correctly and best practice is adhered to in order to best position employers to defend any actions that might arise.
