The Grievance Procedure has been replaced by the Complaints Policy
The Trustees of Nottingham Hackspace have the authority to ban anyone from entering the space and the authority to strip anyone of their membership. This must only be done in circumstances where this authority is best for the Nottingham Hackspace and its members as a whole.
This policy will only be applied to members who demonstrate unwillingness to address behaviour which has caused offence, harm or distress to another member or members; or has threatened the safety of the Hackspace. This may be behaviour directly targeting or witnessed by any individual. The Nottingham Hackspace SafeSpaces policy elaborates on this somewhat. Throughout the process, all efforts will be made to keep clear and constructive communication between the trustees, the offending party, and any other affected parties.
In very serious cases, trustees may invoke temporary access bans until the issue is resolved. Should a trustee become the focus of a complaint, they will not be included in their normal capacity during the grievance process.
