About Weir

Origins

Elaine Brus, an experienced industrial and employment law barrister, assembled WEIR upon her exit from the bar. She identified the need for independent, practical, knowledgeable and affordable management of workplace issues that meets legal and regulatory requirements.

Elaine selected Directors, Principal and Senior Consultants with a depth and breadth of experience required for the management of workplace behaviours.    Clients will then have a consultant allocated to them to meet the requirements of the issue at hand.

Ethics

Ethical conduct applies both to the service we provide to our clients and the manner in which we conduct investigations and provide complementary services, including HR guidance and mediation. The value of a workplace review, investigation or any other service can be compromised and damage caused if the consultant does not adhere to important ethical values such as integrity, impartiality, respect, service, accountability and transparency. WEIR Consulting is committed to the highest ethical standards and the utmost excellence in the execution of those ethical values.
