Our Employment, Industrial Relations and Safety team is pleased to offer our program of employment, industrial relations and safety training in 2022.

Our practical and interactive workplace training programs offer human resources professionals, general counsel and managers access to highly skilled lawyers and facilitators, and provide an unrivalled opportunity for skills development.

We are running four online sessions over the course of 2022. The online, interactive sessions will be presented via a live stream by HSF’s experienced lawyers and trainers.

Due to increased demand, each session will be run twice in 2022, initially in the first half of the year and repeated in the second half of the year. We are also excited to introduce a new addition to the program – Safety Law Essentials – a fundamentals course in understanding workplace health and safety obligations and duties in Australia. Further details on all of our sessions are below.  

Our programs have been run online since 2020, to great success. The feedback from participants was extremely positive, and enabled our programs to be made available more widely than ever, especially to clients who are working remotely. You can read the client feedback here.

The 2022 program details are set out below.

Conducting Workplace Investigations

Conducting a workplace investigation can be a daunting process – allegations can be difficult to identify, interviewing witnesses and analysing evidence can be time consuming and confusing, and making findings of fact can be complicated. After handling all the practical and technical difficulties, managing expectations and maintaining workplace harmony while carrying out your investigation may feel all but impossible. Conducting a properly scoped workplace investigation is critical to managing legal risk and protecting your business reputation.

In this online, interactive program, we will:

  • provide clear and practical guidance on how to run an effective workplace investigation
  • provide a sound understanding of the legal and practical issues to address when conducting an investigation
  • how to ensure investigations are efficient, procedurally fair and minimise legal risk
  • when to consider to outsource an investigation and when to seek a report under legal professional privilege
  • explain how to make findings of fact, even in the face of conflicting witness evidence
