ACAS publishes new guidance on workplace investigations

Posted: 16th March 2016   In: Business Employment

ACAS has published useful new guidance for employers on how to conduct workplace investigations involving disciplinary issues.

The guidance stresses the need for investigations to be carried out correctly in accordance with the law. Failure to do so could result in an employer having to pay compensation if sanctions taken against an employee are later deemed by a tribunal to be unfair.

These are the key areas covered by the ACAS guidance:

The full guidance is available here http://www.acas.org.uk/media/pdf/o/5/Conducting-workplace-investigations.pdf

Please contact Jackie Cuneen if you would like more information about the issues raised in this article or any aspect of employment law.
