Investigations pursuant to Codes of Conduct, Policies, or Legislation:

These investigations are initiated based on allegations or complaints made by one party against another, often concerning breaches of codes of conduct or statutory protections.

The investigations are conducted independently, with the aim of providing a fair and unbiased assessment of the allegations.

The investigation report is typically shared with the organisation, the complainant, and the respondent, although it may remain confidential beyond these parties.

stopsexualmisconduct.co.uk explicitly states that it does not provide legal advice to any party involved in the investigation to maintain its independence and impartiality.

Public Inquiries or Reviews:

These investigations are conducted with the intention of transparency and accountability, often initiated by governments, public institutions, or organisations during times of crisis.

The investigations involve writing a report, making recommendations, and committing to making the findings public.

Participants are informed about the process, rules, and terms of reference of the investigation, ensuring transparency and fairness.

The leader of the initiative does not act as a legal representative for any party involved and focuses on seeking the truth and providing recommendations for improvement rather than disciplinary action.

Overall, stopsexualmisconduct.co.uk emphasises the importance of independence, transparency, and integrity in conducting investigations, whether initiated by private organisations or public entities. This approach ensures that the investigations are fair, objective, and focused on achieving the truth and promoting accountability.

Reduce risk with detailed background and pre-employment investigations

Standard background checks and employment investigations can miss vital pieces of information that you need to make smart business decisions. From hiring and client onboarding to monitoring adherence and employee contracts, we provide the details and analysis that you need to make an informed decision.

Hiring new employees brings new risks. Businesses that rely on automated services for background checks, will risk missing the red flags which a skilled analyst’s thorough review may uncover.

Our experienced team surveys many types of records, verifies professional and educational qualifications, and provides context and background to a potential new employee’s personal history. The results of our research are then compiled into a ‘prospect portrait’ that enables you to assess a candidate’s qualifications, evaluate any potential red flags, and make effective recruitment decisions.
