Workplace Investigations

Often, your internal HR team will carry out investigations into disciplinary issues, allegations of bullying and harassment etc.

Sometimes, however, where the issues are particularly complex or sensitive, it is best for the investigation to be carried out by a specialist firm.

We will work with your HR team, and your existing lawyers if they are involved, and will make sure the work is carried out swiftly and efficiently.

Also, we can often make use of “legal privilege” to protect against the obligation to disclose all relevant documents if the matter results in a claim or an individual makes a Subject Access Request.
