The policy is designed to help to ensure that when a suspicion or allegation of misconduct by an employee comes to the attention of the Council, an adequate investigation, conforming to the rules of natural justice, is carried out as quickly as possible.
The policy requires that before monitoring is undertaken a preliminary investigation is completed, and if monitoring is considered appropriate, a monitoring at work impact assessment will be completed. An impact assessment pro forma has been designed, and is contained within the policy, to ensure that the relevant factors are taken into account when deciding if monitoring is justified and to ensure that the exercise is properly authorised.
