Comments and moderation

By submitting a comment you agree to abide by the following rules.  We reserve the right not to publish comments that contravene any of these rules.

You are not required to create an account or sign up to post, but we will not accept anonymous comments. All comments must include a name and a valid email address.

Conduct and use of language
Comments should be relevant to the blog post. Off-topic, abusive or defamatory comments will not be accepted. Comments should not attack an individual’s personality or character.

Spamming and advertising
No advertising or promotion is allowed except when an event, service or product has direct relevance to the topic of discussion.

Legal liability
You are responsible for your comments. By submitting a comment you undertake to indemnify the UK Commission for Employment and Skills against any liability arising from breach of confidentiality or copyright, or any obscene, defamatory, seditious, blasphemous or other actionable statement you may make. The views of visitors to this blog are not necessarily endorsed by the UK Commission.

As we are a Non-Departmental Public Body any comments used for party political purposes will be removed.

Comments on our blogs are pre-moderated: that means they are approved by us before they are publicly viewable.

We will endeavour to publish comments that meet the above guidelines as soon as possible. However, there maybe some delay in publishing comments made over the weekend or public holidays.

Depending on the work commitments of Commissioners and other bloggers, it may not always be possible for them to reply to individual questions or comments.  In some cases, a spokesperson may reply on their behalf, in such cases, we will specify the response is from the spokesperson.

Posts by Commissioners are their views, although due to time constraints they may receive assistance from staff in drafting and publishing content.
