Workplace Investigations

AWI undertakes investigations in relation to complaints and allegations of disciplinary breaches, including claims of discrimination, bullying and harassment, inappropriate conduct, theft and corruption.

Workplace investigations can be time consuming, emotionally taxing and require a level of independence and objectivity that an internal investigation may be unable to provide. If your organisation does not have the capacity to undertake investigations, or a conflict of interest is present or perceived, you should consider outsourcing the investigation process. AWI can assist by providing independent, impartial and professional services, allowing you to focus on managing your business.

Our investigators provide a fair and unbiased assessment of the issues. We ensure that all parties are given an adequate opportunity to state their case and we conduct our investigations objectively with integrity, procedural fairness and confidentiality. We are discreet and mindful of sensitivities within a workplace.

As a long standing panel member of the Common Use Arrangement (CUA HRS2015) for Investigation Services, we have conducted numerous investigations for local and state government agencies as well as the private sector”.

All investigations are carried out by highly qualified and experienced personnel who have held investigative roles in the federal and state public sector and the legal profession. Their experience is backed by appropriate licensing and formal qualifications such as Certificate IV (Government Investigations) and Certificate IV (Fraud Control).

When you engage AWI, you can be confident that our investigations are conducted to the highest standard, robust enough to withstand independent scrutiny and judicial review. At AWI, we ensure that our investigations meet employer’s obligations under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and relevant Work Health and Safety legislation.
