So, the House of Lords has decided that you can\’t be blacklistde from your job, suspended without pay, on the basis of unsupported allegations. Natural justice (and human rights law) means that you are entitled to a hearing first.
Hmm. That\’s interesting.
Dr Carter said the judgment meant the Government could have to pay millions of pounds in compensation to people who had been wrongly removed from the workforce.
He added: "In particular, we welcome the ruling so that the inherent unfairness of this system can be changed before the replacement scheme operated by the Independent Safeguarding Authority comes into operation this autumn. This new system is due to cover an estimated 12 million people who work with vulnerable adults and children.
"This judgment has serious implications for the government\’s plans, and the government needs to look into this as a matter of urgency. Public protection is an important duty and should be done in a fair, effective and efficient way."
As that ISA database will indede be full of unsupported allaegations. Bit of a quandrary there, don\’t you think?
