A step-by-step tutorial that explains how and why an employee investigation meeting should be held and how to hold the meeting yourself.

Poor timekeeping, bullying, theft, fraud, and abuse of company property or equipment are just a few of the issues that organisations may face, and they must be dealt quickly and professionally to ensure that all employees are treated fairly and reasonably.

When you don't have much experience or training, doing employee investigation meetings can be intimidating. By watching these videos, you'll be able to go forward with the information and confidence to hold your first meeting.

You will be given procedural guidelines and templates to ensure that you and your organisation are safe and secure in the knowledge that you are acting legally.

It will also assist you in fully comprehending why investigations are required and what your duty as an investigating officer is in the event that one arises, as well as what questions to ask to ensure that you are in complete control of the meeting.

You can watch these videos again at any time, which is useful because it can take a long time before an investigation emerges, so you can refresh your memory at any moment.
