EMPLOYER RELIES ON INVESTIGATION REPORT TO DEFEND UNFAIR DISMISSAL CLAIM

The Employer, in defending its decision to dismiss an employee, relied on an investigation report prepared by Katherine Wirth Consulting (now Teamwirks). Commissioner Nick Wilson, in the decision of Anthony King v The Trustee for Bartlett Family Trust t/a Concept Wire Industries (U2017/1068) praised Wirth’s “meticulous and balanced investigation process”. Commissioner Wilson stated, “Some investigation reports seen by the Commission in this jurisdiction fail to get to the heart of such a situation and rarely undertake a true balancing of the evidence seen by them. In the case of Ms Wirth’s investigation report she records the process by which she interviewed nine people including Mr King; then made findings on the balance of probabilities of matters of evidence; and finally made findings about the overall import of the evidence”.

“Katherine investigated a highly sensitive and complex sexual harassment matter for us. Through Katherine’s thorough and professional investigation, we discovered that the individuals’ behaviour had impacted a number of people in the organisation. Katherine’s investigation enabled us to fully understand the extent of the situation and take immediate steps to resolve the issue. Due to the circumstances surrounding the complaint, having external support added to the credibility of the process and subsequent outcomes”

“Katherine’s workplace investigation report was the best I have ever seen. We have used other workplace investigators and the quality of Katherine’s investigation and attention to detail was outstanding. We were impressed by the extent to which Katherine was able to obtain evidence, identify the issues, and make both practical and legally sound recommendations”
