Complaints about inappropriate behaviour

If you are considering making a complaint relating to inappropriate behaviour, please refer to the University's Dignity at Work Policy for further details.



Formal hearings and informal meetings under the University's disciplinary, grievance, Dignity at Work, and appeal procedures cannot be tape-recorded by either side and therefore will not be admissible as evidence even where a recording exists. A note-taker may be present at hearings to provide a formal record of the meeting. This will not be a verbatim record but will be made available for both parties to review and agree. This approach has been adopted to maintain the formality of proceedings and to minimise disruption.
