Independent Workplace Investigations
Independent Grievance, Disciplinary and Whistle Blowing Investigations
Workplace investigation handling is one of the aspects of HRM that sometimes needs the support of an independent HR professional, who can perform an unbiased investigation in order to ascertain the facts from all sides. Blue Turtle Consultants, specialises in undertaking such investigations where there may be complex equality issues, such as Disability, Gender or Race discrimination involved, or cases of sometimes serious misconduct in the workplace.We will provide a full case management service from policy review, one to one interviews and hard data analysis, then produce a detailed report with recommendations on what steps can be made to improve the working situation.
- Complete discretion and confidentiality– business reputation and the need for issues to be dealt with in a commercially sensitive manner are our priority
- Bespoke service– fact-find only, investigation with recommendations; a review of your internal investigations; or a professional expert to hear an Appeal
- Clear reports – written in a ‘jargon free’ manner with an evidence trail that is logical and transparent, to aide decision making
- Single or multiple cases– we undertake whistle blowing, individual and collective grievances and disciplinary investigations
- Impartial – for the employer, employee and trade union our investigations are unbiased
- Range of workplace sector experience– from Health and Social Care, Leisure and Tourism, Education, Third Sector, Private Sector, Heavy Industry & Manufacturing to all Public Services we understand the sometimes very complex industry and statutory regulations that need to be met in order to examine individual cases.
We also work closely with workplaces mediators and are always happy to suggest approaches that will resolve issues early on, if at all possible.
The requirement of the law regarding explanation of grievance handling, and the legal framework to avoid unfair dismissal, combine to make this an area where our experience enables us to be both knowledgeable and effective.
