Event Details

Only £399 + VAT : Full day of training, including lunch, template document pack, and post-course HR support.

Many situations in the workplace can give rise to an investigation. The investigating manager’s role is vital not only to decide if formal action may be appropriate but also a poor investigation can leave employers vulnerable to a claim for unfair dismissal.

In an area where managers often feel underprepared and inexperienced, this workshop will leave you feeling confident for when the time comes to undertake a comprehensive, legal and fair investigation. We will discuss:

  • How to decide when an internal investigation is necessary and what it should consist of
  • How to decide who should conduct an investigation
  • How to produce an investigation plan and manage the investigation process
  • The role of suspension and investigations
  • Listening and questioning skills to use during an investigation
  • How to manage difficult witnesses and maintain confidentiality
  • How to produce an investigation report and present findings
  • How to ensure that the information you record and retain is appropriate in the event of an Employment Tribunal

In this workshop we will complete a mock case study investigation where you will interview witnesses as part of a disciplinary investigation.

HR support post-training

On your return to the workplace, we’ll help you become confident in using your training to solve real world problems by providing you with a free support hotline so that you have a sounding board to check your thinking until you’re fully up to speed.

A team of 5 experienced and qualified HR consultants will be on-hand to help you.  Your course fee includes up to 2 hours of email or phone support. Valid for up to 6 months after your training.

Template documents

Slash the time taken by your everyday HR tasks and guard against the risk of poorly drafted documents by using our bang-up-to-date template pack. Prepared by our HR experts and guaranteed 2017 employment law compliant, which will save you hours of research and typing pain.  Provided as fully editable Word document files which makes them foolproof and hassle-free.

  • Investigation report template
  • Witness statement template
  • Agenda for conducting an investigation meeting
  • Invitation to a disciplinary hearing following an investigation

Lunch & refreshments

We love to support local businesses, so a delicious lunch from our neighbours Oliver’s is included within your course fee. Enjoy one of their legendary Mezzalunas!

In addition, there’s as much tea, coffee, and water as you can drink!

We’re happy to do everything we can to accommodate any particular dietary or other requirements, so please let us know of these in advance.


Network with like-minded business professionals, small but friendly groups in a relaxed environment.  The course is limited to 6 delegates, to ensure you receive maximum attention from our knowledgeable facilitators, one of whom hears Employment Tribunal cases.


Your trainer Sarah Loates is a highly qualified HR practitioner, with over 20 years of experience dealing with HR and employment law issues, within both owner managed SMEs and large multinational corporations. As well as delivering our own training, Sarah delivers CIPD courses, and has taught at degree and masters level at local universities. She also continues to provide client advice on more complex HR cases.


This course will take place in our in-house training room, at our Derby city centre offices.
