Workplace investigations

Prominence has undertaken over 75 workplace investigations covering a wide range of sensitive and complex issues such as:

  • discrimination (race, sexual, religious etc)
  • bullying and harassment
  • employee misconduct
  • recruitment and selection
  • workplace health and safety (including complex road traffic accidents)
  • employee performance, discipline and dismissal
  • financial misconduct
  • data and security issues including theft
  • CCC matters.

Our experienced and qualified consultants fully understand the relevant legislation and best practice investigation practices which means that we can be used as trusted advisors to guide our clients through challenging and often disruptive periods. We understand that there are often cultural sensitivities, such as investigations which involve First Nation’s people, and always ensure that this is considered when we select which of our consultants to use. We have a balanced team of male and female consultants which is often a consideration where investigations relate to, for example, sexual discrimination or being bullied in a male dominated work environment.

We have a sensitive and structured approach to undertaking workplace investigations and always ensure that the client’s policies, frameworks and procedures are understood and adhered to and that the client representative is promptly notified if new matters arise through the course of the investigation (such as new allegations) and that the terms of reference are adhered to and updated by the client if required.

We are familiar with being engaged under Legal Professional Privilege (LPP) and have secure IT systems to protect sensitive client information. Our team of consultants are supported by our transcription capability and every investigation report is subject to a peer review and quality check by one of our senior and experienced team members.
