The public sector Prison Service has quarterly meetings with Treasury Solicitors and Home Office Legal Advisors Branch, which include a review of learning from employment tribunals and civil service appeal boards. Learning points, together with examples of good practice, are then disseminated through updates on the Prison Service's guidance websites, which are available to all staff via the intranet system; and weekly communications to the HR—human resources—community.
