Dignity at Work - a new model policy

Dignity At Work Policy
One of the project objectives is to strengthen the governance arrangements across our sector to better support councils.

The Dignity at Work Policy is the first of a series of new or revised governance documents which are being developed by the NALC/SLCC Civility & Respect project team.

The documents have been reviewed by a focus group made up of clerks, councillors, monitoring officers, and county associations, and approved by NALC and SLCC for use.

The Dignity at Work policy will replace any previous Bullying and Harassment Policy. It encompasses behaviours beyond bullying and harassment, and zero tolerance, with the aim of dealing with concerns before they escalate.

It has been produced with supporting guidance because it is so important that any commitment made in the policy is applied in practice. 

Wording has been suggested to demonstrate a council's commitment to promoting dignity and respect where they have signed up to the Civility and Respect Pledge.

Councils who have not signed up to this are requested to consider making this pledge which is based on basic behaviours and expectations of all council representatives to create workplaces that allow people to maintain their dignity at all times. Click to take the pledge.

Community Emergency Plan Template

It's worth remembering that a significant proportion of our communities need extra assistance during emergencies. Regardless of the threats we face in Norfolk (flooding, fire or other), the activity of evacuating individuals from areas of risk is a stressful and challenging situation to deal with.

All communities and parishes are strongly encouraged to complete and retain a Community Emergency Plan to prepare for such events.

Practitioners Guide 2022

The Practitioners' Guide ('the guide') is issued by the Joint Panel on Accountability and Governance (JPAG) to support the preparation by smaller authorities in England of statutory annual accounting and governance statements found in the Annual Governance and Accountability Return.
This 2022 edition of the Guide applies in respect of financial years commencing on or after 1 April 2022. Thus the 'proper practices' laid down in Sections 1 and 2 of this edition of the Guide must be applied in the financial year ending 31 March 2023 and the Annual Governance and Accountability Return ('AGAR') for the year ending 31 March 2023 ('the 2023 AGAR') must be prepared in accordance with Sections 1 and 2 of this edition of the
Guide. Note that the comparative figures (the figures for the year ended 31 March 2022 included in the 2023 AGAR) must be stated on the same basis as the figures for the year ending 31 March 2023.
The 'proper practices' in this edition of the guide may be applied in preparing the AGAR for the year ending 31 March 2022 but this is not mandatory. Again, comparative figures must be stated on the same basis.
