Workplace Investigation

Workplace Investigation

DTI Lawyers are qualified workplace investigators who conduct complex independent employment investigations throughout Hamilton, the greater Waikato, and Bay of Plenty.

Our workplace investigators are engaged to conduct unbiased investigations on behalf of employers who have received allegations of misconduct such as bullying, harassment or discrimination, conflicts of interest, unauthorised expenditure or property use, and IT misuse.

Our employment investigators appreciate that sensitive and complex allegations require a skilled investigator. We have expertise in providing an impartial, fair and confidential process. This includes the provision of a confidential investigation report, including findings, observations, and facts. Where the scope of the investigation requires, we can also provide recommendations as to any subsequent employment/disciplinary process.

Conducting a workplace investigation can be time consuming and complicated. Employers are expected to meet a high standard of natural justice, which requires a skilled investigator. Those conducting investigations need to act objectively, without bias or interest in the outcome. We minimise the risks associated with procedural flaws in investigations, which can be costly and damaging to an employer’s credibility.

We recognise that individuals may be apprehensive that an investigation will be intimidating. DTI Lawyers employment investigators develop rapport with those involved, to conduct the process in an inquisitorial, respectful and non-confrontational way.

Our experience extends across many sectors, including health, education, local government, sports, iwi organisations, construction, manufacturing, retail, professional services, social-services, non-profit organisations and public sector organisations.
