Drafting Allegations

Clear and precise allegations form the foundation for an effective and procedurally fair workplace investigation.

This workshop delivered in partnership with Grange Advisory is focused on the investigation framework and process once a decision has been made that a complaint or workplace matter ought to be formally investigated.

Obtaining sufficiently detailed information from a complainant can ensure that allegations presented to a respondent are procedurally fair and specific to enable them to respond. Preparing allegations appropriately will set up the investigation in a way that will likely result in more precise and robust findings while also contributing to the investigation being procedurally fair.

In this workshop participants will work through practical examples to draft allegations effectively while identifying potential challenges.

Topics covered:

  • What a procedurally fair allegation looks like
  • How to interview a complainant when drafting allegations
  • Drafting Allegations with reporting in mind
  • Tips and Traps when drafting allegations

Learning Outcomes
