Corporate and Community Services Cabinet Member – Minutes – 31 October 2011

10  (10)  REVISED HUMAN RESOURCE (HR) DOCUMENTS – The Assistant Director Human Resources submitted a report which outlined the need to make amendments to the council’s Managing Performance and Capability Hearing documents. 

The proposed changes, included renaming the document ‘Managing Performance’, and placed a greater emphasis on the day to day management of performance, informal intervention where performance was inadequate and highlighted the overarching framework of supporting practices. 

It was explained that the capability hearing element of the current procedure had been separated out and would apply where the earlier stages of the Managing Performance procedure or the Sickness Absence procedure had been exhausted. 

Extensive consultation had taken place over many months on the revised documents and the relevant trade unions had been consulted and were supportive of the revision. 

Resolved – That the revised documents be approved and adopted.

Where there is no report this is because it is exempt, as it contains information which is considered to be of a confidential nature, as detailed in the Local Government (Access to Information) Act.
