Investigation Toolbox

Conducting a workplace investigation into misconduct including, bullying, harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, fraud or misuse of company resources such as IT or social media is misunderstood by far too many employers, often to their detriment.

For example workplace bullying is recognised as a serious threat to employees’ health and safety and employers simply cannot afford the impact of workplace bullying on their business and reputation.  Anti-bullying legislation effective as of 1st of January 2014 means zero tolerance will be shown to employers who don’t take workplace bullying seriously.

When confronted by workplace misconduct you must decide do it yourself or call in an expert. There are a number of reasons for making a decision to do it yourself but often the cost is a major factor, this is where the Australian Workplace Training and Investigation toolbox can assist you at the fraction of the cost of an external investigator.

Using easy-to-follow plain English advice, our DIY investigation toolbox will enable you to conduct a stress-free workplace investigation.  Helpful documents such as our uniquely tailored interview scripts take the hard work out of interviewing complainants, witnesses and the alleged wrongdoers.

The Australian Workplace Training and Investigation toolbox contains full documentation and far more than is offered anywhere else including a full set of workplace instructions, an interview manual, letters, interview scripts and sample investigation reports.

The Workplace Investigation toolbox will:

  • Guide you through the entire investigation – from the outset to conclusion
  • Assist you to prepare an investigation plan and draft interview plans
  • Guide you through the process of interviewing with the interview manual and scripts
  • Reduce the fear of being sued by aggrieved employees as a result of a poorly conducted investigation
  • Explain procedural fairness, the rules of evidence, conflict of interest and bias.
  • Tell you the “what”, the “why” and the “how” of workplace investigations
