Conducting Workplace Investigations
Step by step. As it's this process that generally trips employers up, Acas has released free guidance on conducting workplace investigations. It covers topics such as investigation preparation; the investigator's role; gathering evidence; report writing and what to do once the investigation is completed. If you or someone in your business needs to conduct an investigation it's well worth downloading and following the guidance.
Tip. Throughout the guidance, "must" is used where something is a legal requirement. The word "should" indicates what Acas considers to be a good employment practice for employers.
