What is a disciplinary investigation?

A disciplinary investigation is a fact-finding mission. No more and no less. The purpose is to find out on the balance of probabilities whether there is a case to answer. It is not an exercise to find out whether an employee is guilty or not. Workplace investigations can be carried out in a variety of situations, and not just in disciplinary action. Investigations happen for example where there are;

  • Matters of misconduct
  • Capability
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Absence
  • Grievances
  • Whistleblowing allegations

You continue to have employment rights during the investigation.  The ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures applies to any matters relating to discipline. Your employer has a legal duty to act reasonably and use a fair procedure. The ACAS Guide gives directions on what it is to act reasonably and fairly, and the duties are further developed by the Courts and Tribunals in case law.

This e-book is your essential step-by-step guide to the workplace investigation process. It includes templates for witness statements and preparing your chronology. It does not just regurgitate generic information about internal investigation, but supplies you with directions on law and processes that you can apply to your own situation. The book has 61 pages of guidance which includes;

Preparing your statement of defence
Your rights in whistle-blowing investigations
The allegations against you
The investigation/fact-finding meeting
Your right to confidentiality
The evidence against you
Witnesses and witness statements (including anonymous witnesses)
Investigation of criminal offences at work
