About the Workplace Investigations Book

Written by Worklogic Co-founders, Grevis Beard and Rose Bryant-Smith, and Worklogic Senior Investigator, Lisa Klug, who have collectively conducted more than 300 investigations, Workplace Investigations is  essential reading for anyone 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.

You will learn how to:

  • judge when an investigation is required
  • scope and plan an investigation appropriately
  • collect and analyse evidence
  • make findings of fact in a procedurally fair way
  • assess any wrongdoing against your organisation’s policies and procedures, in cases of bullying, harassment, discrimination, fraud, theft and other breaches of policy.
  • determine whether your organisation should take any further steps to improve working relationships or to manage risks.

The second edition is fully updated and includes checklists, case law examples and practical tools, plus new information on managing digital evidence and fraud.

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.
