Australia: BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Investigating workplace complaints - the masterclass
Last Updated: 3 September 2016

Following the feedback we received from our highly successful Masterclass held in March this year, Investigating Workplace Complaints, we have decided to run the Masterclass again on 31 August to accommodate those who couldn't attend the last session.

Aimed at HR manager level, the Masterclass is an interactive session which is both educative and practical in that it incorporates a series of relevant activities and materials which participants can subsequently utilise in the conduct of workplace investigations within their roles.

The Masterclass will be conducted by Madgwicks Partner, Michelle Dawson (an LIV Accredited Workplace Relations Specialist), at Madgwicks head office in Melbourne. The 3.5- hour workshop, which includes lunch, will take place in small groups and covers:

  • Why the need for a workplace investigation?
  • Identifying whether an alternative approach to investigation is appropriate
  • Determining who should investigate, including making the decision between using an internal or an external investigator
  • The pros and cons of legal professional privilege in the context of workplace investigations
  • Planning the investigation
  • Ensuring procedural fairness
  • Confidentiality
  • Formulating allegations
  • Preparing Terms of Reference
  • Interviewing techniques
  • Burdens of proof
  • Preparing an investigation report
  • Making findings
  • Making recommendations
  • Communicating outcomes
