Workplace Investigations

Matthew undertakes complex workplace investigations dealing with behavioural issues. Sometimes this work is undertaken directly for a business, while on other occasions it involves the preparation of a report for the business’ legal advisors.

A rapidly expanding area of work involves the provision of high level advice to senior management about the significance of employee concerns and the appropriateness of existing internal review mechanisms”. The reality is that business today cannot afford to have internal investigation arrangements that are either too slow or are unable to recognize potential very damaging disputes.

Matthew also undertakes employee payment reviews in concert with specialist payroll experts. His advice primarily goes to interactions with employees and ensuring the correct award or agreement classifications are being applied.
