  • Investigation

    The act of investigating an issue in the workplace. Common acts of misconduct that are investigated in the workplace include theft, bullying, harassment, discrimination and falsifying documents.

    Employers should be careful to avoid raising an issue that is either not serious or simply untrue. Before jumping to conclusions, employers should take the time to collect facts and testimonials from the right sources. This means talking to the employee/s who first raised the issue along with reviewing relevant documents, security camera footage, timesheets and other company records.

    All investigations must be carried out in good faith and in search of only the facts—not to fabricate the evidence or influence the decisions of those involved.
