    Educate Yourself

    Learn how to conduct your own internal workplace investigation.

    If you’re considering an internal investigation or wondering when to involve a professional investigator, this is the place to learn more. When policies are breached or people are harmed, HR should be learning why it happened so it doesn’t happen again. That’s the value of a thorough internal investigation.

    The Method Resource Centre provides you with the tools you need to examine, investigate, understand and prevent many workplace claims including harassment, bullying, sexual harassment, assault, discrimination, professional misconduct, compromised health and safety and more.

    Not sure you can do it yourself? Connect with a Method lawyer for an assessment.
