2017 Updated RIBI dispute management document

RIBI Dispute Management Process Aug 2017

RIBI general secretary, Amanda Watkins wishes to draw attention to:

The key difference in this document is the addition of Annex 7 that details information relation to Defamation, Slander and Malicious Falsehood.

On page 1 please note that Amanda has added detail relating to this annex as follows:

Annex 7 provides guidance relating to defamation, slander and malicious falsehood that may arise from inappropriate or ill-considered communication by Rotarians to others. Individuals are responsible for what they may say, write or do and Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland does not have provision to financially support an individual who chooses to communicate in a manner that is defamatory within the context of a civil claim.

RIBI do hold insurance cover for libel and slander but its intended use is to protect Rotary from third-party attack not to defend claims made by members or former members against the organisation in relation to disputes; this is very important to understand and Amanda will be creating a series of short videos specific to all of our compliance, insurance and dispute management areas to help members better understand expectations and limitations.
