Minutes:

Councillor Webb, the Portfolio Holder for People & Information presented the report.

 

It was noted that the HR Policy handbook would also include Anglia Revenues & Benefits Partnership staff.

 

Councillor Jermy had noticed that consultation had taken place with Unison and asked why their comments had not been included.  The Leader agreed.  Councillor Wassell pointed out that the majority of staff were non-unison and felt that all staff should have been consulted.

 

Councillor Brame queried the reporting path and asked why it had come straight to Council and not to the Overview & Scrutiny Commission (O&SC).  Members were informed that since the demise of the General Purposes Committee, these matters were now under the remit of Full Council. The Executive Manager for People & Protection advised that there was nothing to prevent it going to O&SC.  Councillor Monument was also minded to say that the Policy Handbook should be looked at again as she was aware of a number of omissions and felt that it would have been useful to have it thoroughly examined.

 

It was proposed and seconded and

 

RESOLVED that the HR Policy Handbook be presented to the Overview & Scrutiny Commission for further debate.
