The Committee resolved in terms of section 50(A)(4) of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 to exclude the press and public for the following item of business on the grounds that it was likely to involve the disclosure of exempt information as defined in Paragraph 1 of Part 1 of Schedule 7A to the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973.





Consider Appeal Against Grievance


The Committee noted that a request for continuation had been received from Mark Lines, Senior Manager, Children, Families and Justice Services, Argyll and Bute HSCP.  The Committee agreed to adjourn the meeting and requested that officers from Legal and Regulatory Support organise a suitable date to reconvene. 


The Committee reconvened on Thursday, 20 January 2022 with all those present as per the sederunt. 


The Chair advised that in terms of the Grievance Procedure the Committee would only be in a position to consider those matters which had already been considered in the course of the grievance process and would not consider any new items which had been considered as part of a separate process. 


The Committee gave consideration to submitted evidence on behalf of the Appellant and the Employer in regard to the case for appeal against grievance. 


When asked, both parties confirmed that they had received a fair hearing. 




The Appeals Committee resolved that the grounds of the appeal had not been substantiated and the appeal be not upheld.
