Workplace investigations have been our area of specialty since we established the business in 2012. Since then, our company has grown to become a recognised expert in workplace bullying investigations.

We’ve conducted hundreds of investigations in the workplace, investigating bullying, sexual harassment, nepotism, fraud and discrimination and other misconduct matters.

Our workplace investigations have taken us to all of the major cities of Australia (Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Darwin, Perth) along with rural and remote areas.

Our workplace investigators have experience with a wide range of complex investigations in the workplace and are used to interacting with all parts of an organisation from the factory floor to Board level. Our workplace investigators are also experienced in working under legal professional privilege as we are regularly engaged by lawyers to conduct investigations for their clients.


Turning your workplace investigations over to a licensed specialist has many benefits, most notably, it frees you up to focus on your core business.

Investigations are extremely time consuming and it’s likely you don’t have the time to devote to conducting the sort of thorough process that is required. That’s where trusting your investigation to an independent specialist who can manage the matter to conclusion, is a great solution.


There are many benefits to outsourcing to an independent specialist:

  1. Decreased perception of bias
  2. A focused approach leading to a faster outcome
  3. Specialist experience
  4. Up to date case law knowledge
  5. Less of a time burden
  6. Ongoing free support and advice post investigation



It is important to have an independent expert handle your workplace investigation matter


Did you know, workplace bullying is a Workplace Health and Safety issue?  For this reason, employers need to respond to workplace bullying and harassment complaints quickly and correctly or risk facing Enforceable Orders from the Fair Work Commission.

What is workplace bullying?


Workplace bullying can be very toxic to a workplace. How you handle allegations of bullying in your business is crucial to avoiding involvement by the Fair Work Commission down the track. When allegations of bullying come to your attention, it is important to investigate immediately and thoroughly. Experts in workplace investigations can ensure the process is carried out correctly in accordance with the rules of procedural fairness. Failure to address allegations of bullying can lead to a Stop Bullying Order being made by the FWC.
