Conducting Workplace Investigations Training

“It is important to carry out necessary investigations of potential disciplinary matters without unreasonable delay to establish the facts of the case. In some cases this will require the holding of an investigatory meeting with the employee before proceeding to any disciplinary hearing. In others, the investigatory stage will be the collation of evidence by the employer for use at any disciplinary hearing.”

Acas (2015) Code of Practice, Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures, March 2015, para 5, page 5
