Grievance/Disciplinary/Capability Information

Farrah Wilson made this Freedom of Information request to Glasgow Kelvin College

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Glasgow Kelvin College,

1) Since merger, please provide the number of disciplinary investigations undertaken at Glasgow Kelvin College. For avoidance of doubt, I mean investigations which have taken place before any formal disciplinary procedure has been invoked. Please provide details of this on an annual basis until present date.

2) In addition to the above information please provide how many of these investigations went to a formal disciplinary procedure and what type of disciplinary action was issued on each occasion (if any) in terms of your own procedure such as No Action, Written Warning, Final Written Warning, etc.

3) Please provide the number of grievances submitted during the same time period, again broken down annually in the same way. Please also provide details as to how many of these grievances were deemed competent to be heard under the grievance procedures.

4) In addition to this information please detail how many grievances were upheld and how many of these grievances were individual and how many of these grievances were collective.

5) Please state how many grievances were raised about bullying/harassment/victimisation or with regard to any protected characteristic under the Equalities Act 2010 and how many of these were upheld.

6) Please also provide details of the number of staff reviewed both formally and informally under your Staff Capability Policy and state the number of cases, year on year since merger, which reached first formal stage of this policy.

7) Please indicate your staff turnover each year since merger. For the avoidance of doubt I mean the number of staff who have resigned or otherwise and it has been deemed necessary to replace them, as a percentage of the total workforce. Should members of staff taken early retirement Voluntary Severance/Exit Packages, I do not expect these staff to be included in either part of the calculation (that is to say the number of leavers/replacements or the total workforce).

Please acknowledge receipt of this request and I shall look forward to receiving this information within the 20 working day statutory limit.

Yours faithfully,

Farrah Wilson

foi, Glasgow Kelvin College
