Independent Workplace Investigations
When allegations or complaints are made at work, it is important that they are taken seriously and investigated and responded to fairly, transparently and in a timely manner. Where the complaints fall under a specific employment procedure e.g. grievance, conduct and discipline, it is essential that an investigation is carried out within the context of the relevant organisation’s policy framework.
Getting the investigation right, and undertaken as expediently as possible is important – not just because of the risks to the employer if the investigation is deemed to be unfair – but also for the health and wellbeing of all parties concerned.
At Sancus we help you manage the risk associated with complex or serious employee relations cases by undertaking independent investigations into grievances and issues of conduct and discipline.
Sancus understands that being part of an investigation into complaints/allegations is stressful for all parties involved no matter what their role is in the process, and in undertaking the investigation will treat all parties fairly with dignity and respect.
Sancus are committed to ensuring that all aspects of our work are completed to the highest quality standard and in strict compliance with legislation and regulations. It is a condition of engagement that all personal identifiable information is processed in a safe and secure manner with access strictly restricted to colleagues who have a need to know.
Investigations are covered by the ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures which is the minimum a workplace must follow. Sancus ensures that the investigation is reasonable, helping the employer to mitigate against risks associated with an unfair process.
