Circular 1 of 2016 was approved in March 2016 in the Provincial Education Labour Relations Council (PELRC), although it had been signed by the Head of Department in January 2016. Circular 1 of 2016 replaces Circular 65 of 2007.
It is important to note that Circular 1 of 2016 distinguishes between the misconduct procedure for public servants (Public Service Act, 1994 and PSCBC Resolution 1 of 2003) and the procedure for educators (Employment of Educators Act, 1998).
