The purpose of the Employee Appeals Committee is to consider and determine appeals against dismissals arising from employment procedures (e.g disciplinary, capability, sickness absence, etc.), with the exception of the Senior Management Team.
Meetings of the Committee are only scheduled when a hearing is required and are therefore very infrequent. Due to the nature of the matters under consideration that relates to private information regarding individual employees, the vast majority of the meetings will not be open to the public.
More information on the terms of reference and responsibilities of the Employee Appeals Committee can be found in Part 3 of the Council’s Constitution.
