Workplace Investigations

In a climate of changing workplace laws, and serious implications for getting it wrong, a well conducted Workplace Investigation is a valuable asset.  The process must be efficient, have a strong foundation in Procedural Fairness, afford Natural Justice and stand up to scrutiny by Fair Work, a Tribunal or even a Court.

Experience Counts.

Undertaking a Workplace Investigation can be one of the most challenging aspects of an internal HR role. Mistakes can happen when the investigator is not properly trained, they are inexperienced, they lack true independence perhaps as a result of previous matters, or they are simply under pressure to resolve matters quickly.  FiveSeven is committed to guiding and instructing HR professionals to undertake Workplace Investigations, with quality reporting and outcomes. Our mentoring and advice services include not only the investigation process, but the practice of making appropriate factual findings and recommendations (where there are workplace concerns or allegations) and providing peer review.
