Whether it be a disciplinary allegation or a grievance received by the organisation, both processes require an impartial investigation. For many organisations, finding someone with the skills and knowledge to undertake an impartial investigation can be difficult and in smaller organisations it may be impossible. Those difficulties may be compounded if the allegations are against a senior member of staff.
B&D Roper Ltd have specialist skills in undertaking disciplinary and grievance investigations including those where safeguarding may be an issue. We are independent of your organisation and have no preconceptions. Our final report will allow the Chair of the disciplinary or grievance hearing to reach a ‘balance of probabilities’ conclusion whether that be that the allegations are upheld or that there is no case to answer.
We can also provide advice and guidance as to whether suspension is appropriate and, if so, how to manage that suspension.
