(Guernsey) Employee Misconduct: How to Conduct an Internal Investigation

This memorandum considers the requirements for a fair investigation as part of a disciplinary process at work, including what amounts to a reasonable investigation, the different roles of the various participants (including HR), how much investigation is required, the form the evidence might take, and the contents of the investigatory report. It is intended to assist HR practitioners and managers to avoid the pitfalls which might take the investigation outside the "range of reasonable responses" test applied by the employment tribunals when considering whether a fair procedure has been followed prior to taking the decision to dismiss.
