have a common law right to resort to summary dismissal
of an employee for serious and wilful misconduct, drunkenness,
dishonesty or disobedience. Termination of employment
is however the ultimate sanction and dismissal is not
a right that should be exercised without a thorough
and competently conducted investigation. A finding of
unfair dismissal can be costly.
Allegations of serious misconduct should be fully investigated
and those accused must be accorded procedural fairness.
There are many advantages in having such allegations
dealt with by impartial external investigators, who
can save you time and money and remain at arms length
from the often intense and emotional responses that
workplace complaints and grievances can engender within
