with Andrew Scott-Howman

Workplace investigations are gaining a real prominence in New Zealand now - especially after the recent spate of allegations concerning incidents of sexual harassment.

An interesting question arises for an employer about when - if - it might be appropriate to consider mediation in relation to an issue that would otherwise be investigated. There are some tricky issues of fairness - and public perception.

Andrew Scott-Howman is a qualified workplace investigator, and shares his thoughts, experiences and war stories (!) in this presentation.

This webinar will be of interest to lawyers, workplace investigators, HR specialists, managers and mediators.
