Investigating discrimination and sexual harassment allegations

Post #metoo, sexual harassment complaints are a critical business risk. We advise organisations on how to create safe and inclusive workplace cultures that minimise the risk of harassment or discrimination. If allegations come to light, businesses need to investigate swiftly and sensitively. We advise on all aspects of equality laws and, where an investigation is required, our lawyers will guide you to a resolution.
