eWISE - September 2015 


Thank you to all of you who dropped in to meet us at the recent AHRI Conference.  It's always a delight to meet current and prospective clients and discuss the real issues that are facing HR managers!

Due to its popularity we have added another Melbourne date in December for our Conducting Workplace Investigations course. We are also running our Investigative Interviewing course in Melbourne in November with REAL ACTORS - there are only 2 spots left  - so book online to secure a place today. 

This months blogs cover the challenges of investigations which span criminal and civil matters; the standard of proof; tips on how to predict bullying situations and the complexities of providing fairness and protection at the same time.  I hope you enjoy them.

Another dimension to the standard of proof

By Harriet Stacey

It is not uncommon that following a workplace investigation, the former employee raises allegations that the process was procedurally flawed. In addition to considering the investigation process, we need to be aware that the standard of proof used to make any findings may be called into question. Read more here

Bridging the gap

By Harriet Stacey

There are special skills that come into play during any workplace investigative interview. Particular care is needed, however, when non-criminal elements of a child-related issue are under investigation. Criminal and civil investigative processes might both be required for the one workplace matter, and within each approach the challenges can be considerable. Read more here
