Dignity at Work

The purpose of this policy is to support dignity and respect at work and to help foster a positive and dignified workplace culture. The policy describes the courses of action open to members of staff who experience unacceptable or inappropriate behaviour but also how, as an organisation we aim to minimise the incidents of such behaviour occurring in the first place.

The material contained in this section is management guidance, rather than guidance that has been agreed in partnership.
