Search authorisation and consent


The organisation has a policy on the stop and search of employees in place to protect both the organisation and its staff from illegal activities, such as theft of the organisation's property or property belonging to another and the possession or supply of illegal substances.

Under this policy, the organisation reserves the right to stop and search its employees.

If an employee refuses to be searched, no search will take place and a member of management/the HR Manager will consider whether or not the reason for the refusal is reasonable.

An employee may face disciplinary action in line with the organisation's disciplinary policy if he/she unreasonably refuses to undergo a search or is found in possession of an item in breach of this policy following a search.

The organisation may report the employee to the police if there is evidence that the employee has committed an offence or if the search reveals evidence that the employee has committed an offence.
