Rajah & Tann Singapore Contributes Singapore Chapter of International Employment Lawyer’sÂ Guide to Workplace Investigations
Rajah & Tann Singapore has contributed the Singapore chapter of theÂ Guide to Workplace Investigations, published byÂ International Employment Lawyer. The Guide to Workplace Investigations examines key issue that organisations need to consider when they initiate, conduct and conclude investigations in the 23 jurisdictions covered by the guide. Employers have to navigate a complex set of obligations imposed by the law, frequently under time pressure and under adversarial conditions, when conducting workplace investigations. Authored byÂ Jonathan YuenÂ (Head of Commercial Litigation and Employment & Benefits (Disputes)), partnerÂ Doreen Chia, together with Associates Tan Ting Ting and Yap Pui Yee, the Singapore chapter discusses practical issues relating to each stage of the workplace investigation process: from who the grievance handler should be, whether an employer can search an employeeâs possessions files, what information must the employee under investigation be given about the allegations against him, to what extent should the investigation report be shared with the complainant or the employee being investigated.
Through this guide, legal, compliance and HR professionals will gain a baseline understanding of the legal and best practice requirements necessary to conduct a successful and defensible workplace investigation.
