Disciplinaries, Grievances & Investigations


Employee discipline and grievance

When you're faced with employee disciplinary matters, or sensitive or complex employee complaints, it’s vital to establish the facts, investigate properly and reach a fair decision. 

We’re known for our commercial and pragmatic outlook, and our incisive ability to resolve disputes. We'll discuss with you whether it's best for us to carry out the entire investigation, or simply to help you with your own investigation, and advise on interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence.

Investigations we regularly help with include:

  • employee misconduct 
  • bullying, harassment or discrimination 
  • whistleblowing 
  • allegations of victimisation
  • complaints against senior management

In addition, we’re always conscious of commercial sensitivities and the need to ensure your business complies with its legal duties. If matters involve an employee in a regulated role, our regulatory and compliance experts will help you comply with your notification obligations.
