This course is a stepping stone for the following courses we offer:

Throughout any disciplinary or grievance process the key piece of information is that records of meetings, conversations and reasons behind decision-making are all carefully documented. A good investigation is key and the most detailed part of any potential dismissal with the disciplinary hearing being a review of the facts, enabling a conclusion to be drawn on the matter and whether a sanction is issued. Carrying out an investigation will make it possible to see what should be done next. It also shows that issues raised are dealt with fairly and thoroughly giving them confidence in their management team and processes.

The knowledge and tools to enable effective, fair and compliant management of suspensions and to complete thorough investigations is what this course is all about.
