From time to time, you may find it necessary or appropriate to appoint external, impartial individuals to investigate grievances or disciplinaries or conduct formal hearings or appeals. At Forbes our employment team can conduct such investigations and hearings and a separate member of the team can also provide independent legal advice on the process as well as strategic advice.

Examples of independent investigations that have been carried out by our HR Consultancy team include:

  • Investigating a highly sensitive grievance which related to allegations of gender reassignment discrimination and allegations of bullying and harassment by management;
  • Investigating a grievance which related to complaints of bullying and harassment against a Managing Director;
  • Conducting disciplinaries and appeals in relation to senior personnel;
  • Conducting disciplinaries and appeals in relation to long serving members of staff;
  • Investigating a grievance which related to serious allegations of sexual harassment;
  • Investigating a grievance which related to multiple complaints of bullying and harassment against senior personnel.

Getting such processes right is critical and our team prides itself on its pragmatic and professional approach. Having a legal expert on hand to conduct such critical processes will reduce the legal risk involved and will also relieve responsibility from the business. The relevant person who carries out the investigation or hearing will then also be able to act as an important witness for you, should an employment tribunal claim be brought.

Our team can also assist clients with holding meeting with employees during consultation processes whether during restructuring and redundancy exercises or transfers of employees under TUPE.
