Addressing Participant Welfare And Safeguarding Issues In Sports Disciplinary Investigations

Anyone undergoing a disciplinary review will be put under a degree of stress. In sport, this issue may be exacerbated by a number of factors, including the degree of public attention that many such reviews are subject to.

In his latest article for LawInSport, Richard Bush looks at the issues surrounding participant welfare and safeguarding. His article considers:

  • the importance of participant welfare and safeguarding in conducting disciplinary investigations;
  • practical considerations in addressing participant welfare and safeguarding during disciplinary investigations; and
  • the desirability of making provision for participant welfare and safeguarding in advance.
