You will receive information and advice related to the various types of cases assigned under the HR banner, from bullying to conflict of interest matters. We will give you advice, based on significant experience, on how to manage the various investigations and identify and address possible hurdles such as what could be critical to the case with regard to notifying those involved in the case, legal support for you and the alleged wrongdoers and those jurisdictions with varying time frames for the conduct of investigations. Other advice to be provided will cover investigation planning, analysis of the evidence obtained and writing an investigation report.
