The sanction will depend on the nature of the behaviour that has been found to have taken place and can include:</p><ul><li>Letter of apology to the complainant</li></ul><ul><li>Appropriate training e.g. dignity in the workplace</li></ul><ul><li>A behaviour agreement</li></ul><ul><li>A referral by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards to the Committee on Standards where a stronger sanction is warranted, up to and including a recommendation that a Member be suspended or expelled from the House.</li></ul><p /><p>Further possible sanctions, including withdrawal of services (e.g. catering or library services), or a ban on select committee membership or participation in overseas travel on parliamentary business, are being considered as part of the Committee on Standards’ current inquiry into sanctions. The Committee intends to put to the House a package of proposed reforms to the sanctions regime for approval during autumn 2019.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In the last five years, the House of Commons has signed a number of settlement agreements with employees (formerly known as compromise agreements). In some cases, the House has reached agreements with individuals through ACAS, which are equivalent to settlement agreements but known as COT3 agreements. The majority of these have brought the employment contract to an end, although there have been a small number of in-employment settlements.</p><p>The figures inclusive of all of settlement and COT3 agreements for each of the last five years are:</p><ul><li>2017 – 8 agreements</li><li>2016 – 15 agreements</li><li>2015 – 5 agreements</li><li>2014 – 14 agreements</li><li>2013 – 11 agreements</li></ul><p><br>Confidentiality clauses are included in all or almost all of these agreements. Confidentiality clauses are intended to protect both the employer and the employee, as well as to ensure that the content of the settlement agreement itself is not discussed (so, for example, neither side will reveal how much, if any, money was paid under the agreement). An agreement will often include an agreed reference or public statement from the employer about the employee, and the confidentiality agreement will state that the only comment made by either party will be in the specified form.</p><p>Since January 2015 such clauses have no longer been included as a matter of course. Each case is considered on its merits. Reasons for including a confidentiality clause can include: supporting an individual to leave in a dignified manner; not publicly undermining managers who have been involved in the case; and discouraging similar future claims.</p><p>The House’s approach to confidentiality clauses follows the 2015 Cabinet Office Guidance on Settlement Agreements, Special Severance Payments and Confidentiality Clauses on Termination of Employment. They also follow this guidance with respect to protected disclosures (“whistleblowing”). Any provision in a settlement agreement which seeks to prevent protected disclosures is unenforceable, and since 2015 this has been made explicit with the following statement added to all agreements: “nothing in this Agreement is intended to prejudice the Employee’s rights related to protected disclosures”. All employees who sign settlement agreements receive advice on the contents of the agreement from an independent lawyer or an independent trade union official, for which the House pays.</p>
