Advice on Conducting Employment Investigations

February 2016

This guide is designed primarily for medium-sized organisations in Northern Ireland but the core principles apply as much to small and micro-employers as well as multi-nationals.

The approach to employment investigations that this publication takes is one of 5W - Why? What? Who? When? and Where?

It takes an applied common sense approach, guided by court decisions. Its main focus is to ensure that employers get an employment investigation right whilst being fair and reasonable to all those involved in the process.
