Dignity and Respect

The purpose of the Dignity and Respect Procedure is to promote a working and learning environment and culture in which harassment and bullying are known to be unacceptable and where individuals have the confidence to deal with harassment and bullying without fear of victimisation.

The Dispute Resolution Policies and Procedures have been reviewed. Please note the implementation date for the new Policies and Procedures is 1st December 2017. Anyone subject to a procedure up until 30th November 2017 will remain under the original procedure below.
