Closed Session

4 posts in this topic

In a closed session concerning the conduct of an agency employee it is learned that a Board Member has also committed grievous misconduct tied to the agency employee.  The Board member relies on the closed session rules that their misconduct cannot be discussed or acted upon. How can that Board member be held accountable?

Which rules are those?

Typically, the membership handles the discipline of members.

The information of Board member misconduct was included in a report about the agency employee. The report was sealed in an agreement with that employee in exchange for separation. The Boards hands appear to be tied unless we can refer to the section of the report dealing with the Board members misconduct.

If the closed session rules are your only concern, the solution is simply to enter closed session again, which should be done for disciplinary matters anyway.

As for this business of the report being "sealed in an agreement with that employee in exchange for separation," that sounds like a legal issue, not a parliamentary one. RONR has nothing to say about "sealing" reports.
