Ideally, allegations of breaches of the UL Code of Conduct should be made expressly to the Complaints, Discipline & Vetting Unit of the University on an official UL Complaints Form. A complainant will be asked to provide sufficient information to enable the Advocate to undertake an investigation. In particular, the information should contain the following:
The investigation of a complaint can only begin once an official Complaint Form has been received.
Please submit an Internal Complaint Form if you are an employee or student of UL or an External Complaint Form if you are not an employee or student of UL. The form often allows the Advocate to obtain focussed information necessary for the investigation.
The relevant form should be downloaded from link below and returned either by post to: Complaints, Discipline & Vetting Unit, Plassey House, University of Limerick, Limerick
or by Email to: ULDiscipline@ul.ie
Once a complaint has been made, it will be assessed by the Advocate and dealt with as deemed appropriate.
As part of the assessment process, the complainant/witness, may be called to a meeting with the UL Advocate to supply further details regarding the complaint.
Following the investigation process, should the Advocate determine that there is a case to process, and should that case go to a Disciplinary Hearing, the complainant/witness may be required to attend.
The complainant will be notified once the case is closed.
