With the current state of the world, businesses have had to adapt how they operate and manage staff, including many working from home, on roster schedules or different hours. This presents a number of challenges for managers, but a key issue faced is monitoring and ensuring appropriate staff behaviour.

Poorly conducted investigations (and potentially unsound findings) could present significant legal risk and liability for you and your organisation.
