Minutes:

RESOLVED – That the public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of agenda item 5 ‘Appeal A655‘ to prevent the disclosure of information relating to an individual.  It would not, on balance, be in the public interest to disclose this information to the public because disclosure of the personal information would not be fair to the appellant and therefore in breach of Data Protection regulations.

Appeal A655

To consider a grievance appeal from an employee of the People Directorate.

Minutes:

The Committee considered a grievance appeal against from an employee of the People Directorate.  The Committee had received documentation from the Appellant and Management.

 

The Committee concluded that there were no reasonable prospects of hearing the appeal in person, despite having convened to do so.  The Committee also concluded that it would be inequitable to hear the management case only, without the presence of the appellant.

Accordingly, the Committee concluded that the process was now at an end, without having been able to reach a conclusion.
