Often there is the need for an impartial investigation to be conducted especially whenever complaints of harassment and discrimination are made within the workplace.
A particular section of the public’s sector utilises services of Expert Investigations to conduct interviews and investigations where such allegations have been made in order to give a total element of impartiality.
One such complaint from a public-sector service in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, involved an allegation of bullying by a senior member of a team. As a result of which interviews were conducted with all relevant parties, other supporting witnesses were identified and other means of securing and preserving evidence such as computer data files and written document records were identified and used in the investigation.
All of this was put together in one simple easy to understand file for the HR department to progress and deal with the issue and allegation of harassment internally.
