Published 15th June 2018


The ALCC Employment Support team are continuing to work hard to support its members in employment situations.

  • 3 complaints of bullying by more than one councillor at a council
  • 7 complaints of bullying by one councillor
  • 2 disciplinary actions commenced against a Clerk
  • 1 helping a Clerk with staff problems within her Council
  • 1 Clerk under threat of dismissal because she tried to persuade her council to act lawfully
  • 1 advising re annual leave during maternity leave.
  • 4 Clerks with less than 2 years’ service & therefore minimal employment rights dismissed.
  • 2 attempts by councillors to unilaterally vary a Clerk’s contract of employment.
  • 1 termination of a Clerk’s employment by the council during the Clerk’s probationary period.
  • 1 advice upon a Clerk’s long-term sickness
  • 4 grievances submitted by Clerks.
  • 1 assistance with negotiating a change of working hours
  • 3 settlement agreements whereby Clerks have left their employment
  • 1 advice regarding possible redundancy.
