Mediation

We act for employer clients who are wishing to engage an independent workplace mediator to assist with resolving issues between colleagues.

Mediation can take place at our office, or at the workplace, depending on the nature of the conflict.

Mediation is private, confidential, and provides an excellent opportunity for an employer to assist staff members with resolving issues in the workplace.

Workplace disputes / investigations

Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for an employer to receive a complaint from an employee alleging bullying or harassment.

An employer is not required by law to engage an independent person to investigate the complaint, but if there is a risk (actual or perceived) of bias, then it’s important to engage an independent investigation.

Most employers and employees need investigations to be carried out in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

There is nothing worse for an employer than an investigation being dragged out over weeks, or costs skyrocketing as time is soaked up interviewing numerous witnesses.

We can provide employers a focused and efficient approach to carrying our workplace investigations.

All of our investigations are undertaken or an agreed fee basis. Therefore, employers can rest assured that they are not being charged on an hourly basis.
