The intersection between the criminal law, employment law and workplace investigations will be explored with a panel comprising an investigator, employment lawyer and criminal barrister. Workplace investigators may be required to consideration evidence that may be admissible in future criminal proceedings. The most common incidents of workplace criminal behaviour relate to fraud, theft, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. Is it a criminal issue? Is employment law advice needed? Do I call the investigator? Maybe it is a combination with crossover and timing concerns.
