Clued up or clueless? – It’s your call: A comprehensive practical session on how to quality assure workplace investigations

HPMA North West is committed to supporting members’ Learning and Development, focussing on topics that are current, relevant and have real practical value to their busy day to day practices. Having listened to what our members want to hear about, HPMA has partnered up with law firm, Law by Design and its sister company Investigations by Design. Together we are offering members a full day interactive seminar and workshop on how to ensure workplace investigations are conducted with sufficient rigor and quality not only to satisfy an employment tribunal but to satisfy the requirements of natural justice and internal core values.

A defective or incomplete investigation can be highly expensive in terms of human, legal, financial, business and reputational consequences. Hosted by experienced NHS lawyer and Director, Kirsty MacDonald and supported by senior colleagues from both LBD and IBD, the session will guide delegates through the legal and practical minefields of undertaking a high-quality investigation in the workplace. It will comprise a mixture of presentations and interactive case studies and workshops.

This is an exciting opportunity for HR professionals to develop their forensic investigative skills and share experiences with colleagues.

Law by Design provides bespoke employment law services to employers throughout the UK and has substantial experience of advising NHS organisations. Investigations by Design is a specialist provider of workplace investigation services offering a team of highly experienced, trained case investigators with significant experience of working within complex organisations such as NHS Trusts.

More information and details about how to book will be circulated in May, but for now, save the date!
