With established expertise in cases involving allegations of professional misconduct and workplace misbehaviour, Gilshenan & Luton is often asked to advise upon and conduct independent workplace investigations on behalf of government departments, government-owned corporations and private businesses.
Our investigations deal with allegations such as breaches of professional rules and boundaries, conflicts of interest, misuse of resources, and personal and professional misbehaviour (including sexual harassment).
Our expertise in conducting workplace investigations ensures that they are procedurally fair and legally defensible. Our reports and recommendations are presented in a highly professional yet accessible way, free from jargon and clutter, and tailored to suit the scope and budget of each particular client.
Our workplace investigations team is headed by Directors Glen Cranny and Melanie Morris, both of whom are members of the Australasian Association of Workplace Investigators. Glen Cranny is also a contributing author to the leading text in this area, Workplace Investigations – Principles and Practice, published by Lexus Nexus Butterworths (first edition in 2019, second edition in 2023).
Our reports are written in compliance with the reporting protocols and requirements of the Crime and Corruption Commission, or other overviewing agency, as required.
