Our Principal Lawyer, Racheal Garra, is very experienced at advising employees or businesses on workplace investigations.
Racheal has conducted investigations on behalf of NGO's in the areas of foster care and disability services (known as investigations into allegations of reportable conduct).
We provide detailed reports that include an overview of the facts and evidence gathered, the findings and conclusions we made, and any relevant recommendations.
We understand that workplace investigations are stressful and disruptive for employees and businesses alike. That’s why we work quickly and efficiently to finalise these matters, whilst ensuring we still conduct a thorough and fair investigation.
