The increase in regulatory and internal investigations, particularly focusing on discrimination, bullying and harassment in the workplace, has led to a sharply increased focus on employment practices, policies and cultures.

We have extensive experience representing clients in high-profile discrimination claims, managing related issues of defamation, privacy, whistle-blower protections and mental health impacts. Our experts also skilfully guide our clients on managing bullying and harassment complaints, disciplinary proceedings, and General Protections and wrongful termination claims.

We specialise in assisting employers to adopt practices that foster a workplace culture that empowers employees to raise concerns, free from discrimination, by assisting with the implementation of effective complaint procedures, providing training to managers on how to deal with complaints or issues as they arise, and conducting workplace investigations that recognise both the regulatory framework and challenging pressures from stakeholders.
