Workplace investigations have taken on new significance in Canadian employment law. Human rights and Occupational Health and Safety legislation have mandated prompt and effective workplace investigations. Failure to meet these requirements exposes employers to significant damages, both financial and reputational.

The Law and Practice of Workplace Investigations analyzes the various aspects of an investigation, including employer duties, consequences of errors, rules of conduct, techniques, and the rights of the accused. It also explores common issues surrounding privilege, negligent investigation, and recovery of costs.

Author Gillian Shearer, an experienced and respected workplace investigator and employment lawyer, provides readers with access to all the necessary steps for planning and implementing effective, independent, and fair workplace investigations.

This text is Volume 2 in Emond's Employment Law Series.
