Final closure of a case must be communicated to the LADO, who should make a record of the final outcome.
Learning the lessons: on conclusion of any case, the employer, in consultation with the LADO where possible, should review the circumstances and outcomes of the case with a view to learning any lessons and determining whether any further action is need to improve policy and practice within the organisation or within any other agency involved e.g any training needs. In some cases consideration may be needed as to whether any matters should be brought to the attention of the LSCB
