What's it about?
Investigations and disciplinary proceedings can be complex and tricky to navigate when key issues of safeguarding arise. The need to balance employment aspects with regulatory requirements is key. Our team will provide delegates with the right tools to manage that balance in this half-day seminar, using interactive case studies and worked examples.

Topics will include;

  • Investigating a safeguarding/abuse complaint;
  • Understanding the role of third parties such as commissioners, safeguarding officers, CQC and the police;
  • Instigating disciplinary proceedings;
  • Managing regulatory and employment issues side by side;
  • Identifying unseen issues;
  • Overview of recent legal changes and case law; to include an update on the Mencap sleep-in Supreme Court judgement and the new legislation in force from April 2020.
