The Senedd’s Standards of Conduct Committee is calling for views on a renewed Dignity and Respect policy.
The Committee is consulting on the processes in place to complain about Members of the Senedd or staff who work on the Senedd estate.
The Senedd Commission, the body responsible for the provision of property, staff and services required to enable the Senedd to run, has recently reviewed the approach to Dignity and Respect, covering Members of the Senedd, their staff and those who work on the Senedd estate.
The recent review makes a number of recommendations for the Senedd and the Standards of Conduct Committee has taken these recommendations as a starting point for this consultation.
Vikki Howells, Chair of the Standards of Conduct Committee said:
“Everyone has the right to feel safe and protected when interacting with the Senedd and it is essential that everyone is treated with dignity and respect in the workplace.
“If there is a need to make a complaint about a Member of the Senedd or anyone that works for the Senedd then processes should be clear and accessible for all.
“To help us get the complaints procedure right for the future, we are keen to hear views on how things can be improved.”
The consultation will go live on Thursday 16 November and will be open until 8 January 2024.
