Book Reviews

Q Workplace Solutions | Workplace Ivestigation
This book should be applauded for providing a much-needed best-practise guide for workplace investigations. Whilst the focus is undoubtedly on the obligations and duties of employers and investigators, the book’s detailed analysis and discussion about the workplace investigations model generally should prove useful to anybody engaged in the process.

To date, there has been no comprehensive “how to” guide for workplace investigators which establishes professional and ethical standards, whether they be internal or external. There is no independent supervision of workplace investigators by which the community can repose trust and confidence in their integrity and competence. I very much welcome this work to highlight and address this gap and hope that it contributes positively to the discourse regarding regulation of the workplace investigation industry in addition to providing internal investigators with the appropriate tools and reference point to discharge their obligations and manage risk for their organisation.

Hoctor and Robertson’s book guides the reader usefully through the applicability of the rules of natural justice/procedural fairness to the workplace investigation context.
