Many businesses understand why it can be important to undertake legally privileged investigations following the most serious of work-related accidents.
This webinar will show you how to set up your systems to reduce the risk of having to reveal confidential enquiries, some practical steps about commencing your investigation and how you can manage the process of responding to an incident.
We will explain how you can still undertake full fact-finding enquiries and co-operate with HSE and the police while protecting your position. We cover waiver of privilege, how to mark correspondence, “dominant purpose”, “contemplation of legal proceedings”, solicitor/ client privilege and the use of lawyers, consultants, experts and investigators.
With practical case studies to demonstrate, we also look at some of the recent case law, the erosion of the principle and the consequences of not being prepared and getting it wrong.
