For example, in the US, harassment cases are usually heard by a court of law. We would need more information.

For example, it might not be a committee at all but a "board"…

I'm no expert, but I think most workplace harassment cases in the UK are also dealt with by the courts, or industrial tribunals.

If it's got three members, then it's a tribunal, and it sounds nice and official :-)

(workplace harassment) investigation board (or) (workplace harassment grievance committee)


Explanation:
In Spanish, "instrucción" denotes "investigation" in many legal contexts (criminal, administrative, labor). You might translate this as "workplace harassment investigation board". Another option might be "workplace harassment grievance committee", since "grievance committee" is the term used in many large companies for committees that hear, investigate and resolve workers' complaints.
