Statements, investigations and discipline
When you are involved in a workplace investigation, you'll need to know your rights.
You'll also need to prepare well, and understand what support we can give.
Our advice can help you.
Your employer may ask you to write a statement to help them investigate an incident. Our statement writing guide tells you how.
If your conduct or practice is being questioned, then - provided you were a member at the time of the incident - we will check your statement. Please contact us - we're available 7 days a week.
If you are purely a witness, and you are sure that your conduct or practice is not being questioned, write the statement by following our guidance and hand it in - we don't need to check it for you.
Investigations and suspension
If you are implicated in a disciplinary matter, contact us - we're available 7 days a week. If you were in membership at the time of the incident that led to the hearing, we can help you prepare your case.
Read your employer's disciplinary policy. Also read our discipline guide for an overview of the process from investigation to employment tribunal.
Find out what you can do if you were not in membership at the time of the incident.
