“Workplace Investigations & Outcomes”

Hear from our expert speakers on the process of workplace investigations from internal to attending the Fair Work Commission. A 1.5 hour practical workshop discussing what is involved in an investigation, how you can achieve the best and fairest outcomes for all parties, what happens after the investigation is completed, how to construct a deed of release or settlement agreement, and the view from the FWC bench. There will be a Q&A session following the presentation where you can ask questions of our panel members.
