The Director of People, under the Scheme of Delegation to Officers, is asked to approve the following minor amends:

(2) Disciplinary Policy and Procedure - that the wording of the section covering Criminal Matters (Including Fraud) is amended to make it clear that being arrested or under investigation by the police also need to be notified to management as soon as possible in addition to being charged, cautioned, or convicted of a criminal offence.
