(PRWEB UK) 22 April 2014
The ITV reported on these allegations in an article posted on 4th March 2014 Investigation launched after 'pupils mouths taped shut'. In the article the ITV revealed that a teacher had been suspended over these allegations at the Danesfield School based in Williton (Somerset). The allegations were brought to the attention of the head Executive Head Teacher, Ian Bradbury, by ‘numerous’ parents. The ITV article went on to comment that the alleged incident was being investigated, and that in the meantime a teacher had been suspended. On behalf of the Quantock Federation, Ian Bradbury stated that they took the well-being of the pupils in their care very seriously, and that they were ‘investigating thoroughly’. The teacher involved in the allegations was not named in the article.
In light of these allegations Private Investigators Birmingham (http://detectiveagency-glasgow.co.uk/) explain more about how to deal with these kinds of situations. Allegations against employees can be very challenging for companies and organisations to deal with. Employers had a responsibility to investigate any claims or allegations made against their employees. However they also had a duty of care to their employees, to ensure that all allegations were investigated fairly and that employees were protected against any claims that could be found out to be false. Too many employers these days carry out inadequate investigations and in a ‘knee jerk’ reaction sack staff when allegations are made. Although employers have a right to be concerned about how the allegations could damage the image of their business, they also had to be wary of unfair dismissal. If it was later found that the allegations had been unfounded, or the investigation into the matter was inadequate, then former employees could well bring successful unfair dismissal claims against employers. This could prove very costly in terms of compensation claims and loss of reputation.
Private investigators can provide the skills and experience employers need to carry out effective investigations into allegations against their workforce. These experts could provide discreet and comprehensive investigations which could provide the evidence employers required to make informed decisions. There are many techniques experienced investigators can utilise. This can include comprehensive background checks and enquiries, discreet surveillance, witness statements and more. This can build a reliable body of evidence which employers can find invaluable when investigating serious allegations against members of their workforce.
Chief Investigator Clare Wright cautions all employers against making rushed decisions regarding allegations against their employees. Clare advises that “Employers should seek advice from professionals before acting on allegations. All allegations should be investigated thoroughly, and this could be easily achieved by investing in skilled private detectives. This can ensure employers have all the facts available to them when it comes time to make a decision about how to act on allegations”. Clare went on to comment that “Employers can sometimes feel overwhelmed when dealing with serious allegations. This is why it is so important that they get help from professional investigators, who will be able to guide them towards an effective resolution”.
