Workplace Investigation. Iffat’s primary area of innovative practice is in conducting workplace investigations for private enterprises, municipalities, government bodies, law enforcement bodies, and unions. A workplace investigator assists when issues or complaints arise in the workplace between employees, between employers and employees, or between employees and third parties such as clients. She conducts workplace investigations in the following areas: (1) Discrimination (e.g. ethnic origin, sex, colour, race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.), (2) Harassment (e.g. sexual harassment, cyber bullying, offensive communications, etc.), and (3) Regulatory Compliance (e.g. breaches of government or internal regulations and/or policies).  

Legal Coaching. Iffat’s secondary area of innovative practice is in the provision of legal coaching services.
