FICSA workshop on ensuring the protection of whistleblowers (15 and 16 November 2018, 09h00 to 17h00, ITU Geneva)

When:
15 November 2018 - 16 November 2018
Where:
ITU Geneva
Categories:
FICSA Workshops

Description

Deadline for applications:  31 October 2018

It was decided to postpone the above-mentioned workshop (originally scheduled for 28 and 29 June 2018) to 15 and 16 November 2018.  This is partly due to the low number of registered participants but also due to requests from staff representatives to reschedule the workshop to a later date due to conflicting schedules.

The later date will mean that the workshop will be held after the release of the UN Joint Inspection Unit's report on the whistle-blower protection across the UN common system, scheduled for August and as such should provide a useful analysis of the existing policies.

We are therefore pleased to announce that this newly-created workshop on ensuring the protection of whistleblowers will be held in Geneva on 15 and 16 November 2018 at the ITU in Geneva.

The workshop, which will be presented in English, will be conducted by several renown FICSA legal advisors, with interventions by personalities from the Government Accountability Project (GAP).

This workshop is therefore designed to provide information and advice on the better practices for implementing whistle-blower protection.  A copy of the provisional programme is attached.

This workshop is provided free-of-charge for FICSA dues-paying members. *

For other participants, including staff representatives from non-FICSA member organizations a fee of CHF 400 per person will be charged.  Members with consultative or observer status will however be granted a 30 per cent discount.

General information, including recommendations on hotel accommodation, will be sent directly to the participants along with the confirmation message.

To sign up please use the attached application form.  Nominations should be signed by the President/Chair of the local staff association/union and sent to the FICSA Secretariat This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by no later than the above-mentioned deadline.  Seats are limited and will be confirmed on a first-come first-served basis, irrespective of the duty station of assignment.  It is therefore advisable to register well in advance of the deadline.

A copy of the application form for the workshop on the role of staff representatives during investigations and disciplinary procedures within UN agencies is also attached in case the original announcement was overlooked (email of 14 May refers).

ALL TRAVEL-RELATED EXPENSES AND DSA MUST BE PROVIDED BY THE INDIVIDUAL STAFF ASSOCIATION/UNION OR ADMINISTRATION.
