How to Get Top Marks in ... Tackling Workplace Investigations - ebook

First edition published in 2011
Updated 2014

The employment law relating to workplace investigations makes great demands on employers!

An important skill for managers and HR professionals is the ability to investigate the facts when workplace disputes arise. It is vitally important to collect and consider all the facts before taking any action.

  • What is a workplace investigation?
  • How do I carry out workplace investigations?
  • When should I carry out the fact find?
  • How long does it take?

The fundamental purpose of a discipline or grievance investigation is to collect the facts. But while a really rigorous investigation is essential to a well conducted process, many managers simply skate over the surface and either do not collect the relevant data or fail to take a sufficiently robust approach to data collection.

In this book readers will find out about the legal framework and learn how to identify and avoid the risks of unfair dismissal and unlawful discrimination claims during the investigation process. With its case studies checklists and templates, this is the essential handbook for any manager who carries out investigations.

How to Get Top Marks in ... Reducing Sickness Absence (E-book)

How do you avoid the pitfalls of managing sickness absence and ensure you observe employees’ employment rights?

Sickness happens; but there is a distinction to be made between knowing that there will be some sickness and managing unacceptable levels of absence.

  • What is statutory sick pay?
  • How do I carry out a return to work interview?
  • What is a welfare meeting?
  • When is it acceptable to challenge sickness absence?

Absence can be a serious drain on a business, with the direct costs running to billions of pounds a year. It places a burden on colleagues and a failure to manage poor attendance can result in poor morale if the issue is not tackled, with a consequent effect on productivity and profitability.

Responses to absence must be proportionate and any actions you take must always be fair and reasonable. Inappropriate or discriminatory actions can lead to expensive legal settlements.

This book helps you to stay on the right side of sickness legislation. It sets out the legal requirements, helps you plan effectively, provides best practice guidance and some useful hints and tips to make things go more smoothly.
