WISE Workplace Investigations will work in partnership with the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) to assist HR managers in conducting professional investigations into workplace misconduct.

WISE will hold a series of one-day workshops in all states and territories next year to explain how the workplace investigation process works.

The Investigating Workplace Misconduct workshops, to be conducted in capital cities across Australia, will focus on recognising when an investigation is required, who to conduct an investigation and evaluating evidence for effective decision making.

The AHRI calendar for 2011 is to be released soon.
