User: Describe how the duty of care affects own work role

User: Describe dilemmas that may arise between the duty of care and an individual’s rights.

Weegy: Common Law dictates that we all have a duty of care, examples of managing the consequences of avoiding prosecution under this precedent might be for those driving on our public roads to drive more carefully, [ or for those messing about in public or private places to avoid carrying out activities where injury might occur from their actions there are obviously many examples in our communities where acting in a reasonable manner will avoid breaking that duty of care. But! What happens if you are a paramedic and you have to give life saving first aid to some one with 'aids' there may be a paradox here where the paramedic has to put himself in a position where he/she may cause themselves injury. Is it reasonable to expose yourself to injury to save some one else? ]

Weegy: Time Limit for making a Complaint There is a time limit of 12 months from when the matter being complained about occurred, to when a complaint may be made. [ After this time, a complaint will not normally be considered. However, the 12 month time limit does not apply where the local authority is satisfied that the complainant had good reasons for not making the complaint within that time limit and where it is still possible to investigate the complaint effectively and fairly. Timescales Acknowledgement/receipt of complaint must be made within 3 working days. The standard timescale for a formal investigation will be 3 months. The standard timescale for the overall life of the complaint will be 6 months, Otherwise a new plan of action must be agreed/negotiated with the complainant. For more: ]
