The ‘naming and shaming’ sanction will be implemented when the HR manager has been ruled against in a disciplinary hearing and it is deemed that it is in the public interest for the names to be publicised. Names and details of the case will be published. It will not happen in all circumstances.
Investigation panels will consider evidence against HR professionals when it appears that there may be concerns in relation to:
• professional competence and behaviour;
• ethical standard and integrity;
• representation of the profession;
Other sanctions will also be available as an alternative, including undergoing training or mentoring, or placing conditions on continued CIPD membership.
It is hoped that the measures will improve the faith and confidence that employers have in the CIPD members that they employ.
