Employers' procedures and police enquiries

November 2010
People Management;11/25/2010, p30
The article ponders on the challenge facing employers concerning their investigation into an employee's conduct which overlaps with a criminal matter. Before internal disciplinary action may be done by employers, external criminal proceedings should be completed. Before an employee is dismissed, the employer should have conducted an investigation based on the outcome of the police investigation.
