Resolution 6

The grievance procedure is not fit for purpose as it stands; it needs to be reviewed, and documented, it must satisfy the following requirements:

  • That time frames are set for when a complaint can be made (i.e. current events only) and relating to the response and actioning of it
  • Satisfy “separation of duties” requirements from the main activities of the board
  • That the directors tasked with this role are changed on a periodic basis (not longer than 6 months)
  • Have independent oversight by a professional person i.e. accountant, solicitor, etc. (and not a Director of LHS) to prevent the potential for abuse and maladministration
  • Have an appeals process
  • That complete and proper records are kept
  • That this is added to the memorandum and articles of association as appropriate i.e. in the formal statutory documentation

That no cases are progressed until these balances and processes are in place
