The workplace investigations book

The 2024 edition is fully updated and expanded, with new material on whistleblower protection, interview techniques, digital evidence, sexual misconduct and trauma-informed practice. The latest cases and additional practical exercises are also included.

The authors, Worklogic Directors Jodie Fox, Jason Clark, Rose Bryant-Smith and Grevis Beard, have collectively conducted and supervised more than 500 investigations. In this text they share their wealth of experience, depth of knowledge and analytical rigour.

In Workplace Investigations you will learn how to:

Assess any wrongdoing against your organisation’s conduct standards, including bullying, harassment, discrimination, fraud and business integrity breaches.

Determine what further steps your organisation should take to improve working relationships, manage risks and ensure future compliance.

This is essential reading for everyone with responsibility for investigating workplace conflicts or complaints.

More than 2,000 copies sit on the shelves of HR, risk and compliance managers and others who conduct in-house workplace investigations, around Australia. It is also prescribed reading for the Monash University Masters of Law course.

Workplace Investigations also explores the key elements of procedural fairness, managing the emotional impact of the investigation, ‘high conflict personalities’ and how the organisation can use the lessons learned from the investigation to manage risks and to improve the workplace culture.

The conduct of workplace investigations is an important but still developing practice in Australia. Done well, they can assist employers to make informed and appropriate decisions about workplace issues and complaints but undertaken poorly, they can sour relationships and themselves become the focus of complaint and litigation. This text Workplace Investigations 2nd Edition is a well-researched, sound and practical guide on this topic and represents an excellent.
