About Weir


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 investigations and issues management that meet legal and regulatory requirements.  Elaine retired from WEIR in 2018.  


Ethical conduct applies both to the service we provide to our clients and the manner in which we conduct workplace investigations and provide complementary services, including HR guidance and workplace 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 is committed to the highest ethical standards and the utmost excellence in the execution of those ethical values.
