CIPP update

Individual Chartered Status – Michelle Crook (1973–2016) MICHELLE PASSED away suddenly, just a few days after the CIPP Graduation Ceremony in 2016. At the 2017 CIPP Graduation Ceremony, Eira Hammond FCIPPdip, CIPP chair, spoke

emotionally: “Michelle’s passion for payroll was instrumental in bringing to life the introduction of Individual Chartered Status. She would have been proud to know that she had played such an integral part in this significant accomplishment. The legacy Michelle has left will make a long-lasting difference to the Institute, as well as to the membership.” On behalf of the CIPP board of directors, Eira announced that the distinction of being recognised by the Institute as the very first holder of Individual Chartered Status is being granted posthumously to Michelle. Jill Howell MCIPPdip – deceased

IT IS with much sadness that the Institute reports the death of CIPP member Jill Howell, age 46. Jill, who was payroll manager at Brighton University, is believed to have been killed on the night of 25 October or the morning of 26 October. She was found fatally stabbed at her home in Brighton. David Browning, age 51, of Seaford, who worked with Jill, has been charged with her murder. Jill had worked in payroll across Sussex, including at the Cats Protection in Chelwood Gate, Palmer and Harvey in Hove, and Nannytax in Brighton.

Jill’s family paid tribute to her: “Jill was a kind, gentle and loving sister, aunty and friend. We are shocked and heartbroken by her loss. She touched many lives in her volunteer work with the Samaritans and was always helping others. She lived life to the fullest and was dearly loved by her friends and family.” CIPP member Helen Harvey MSc FCIPPdip said: “She was a dear friend and colleague. All of us are deeply shocked and saddened that our dear friend has been so cruelly taken from us, she will be deeply missed. She was so full of life, supported her friends through tough times and always had a beautiful smile.” Jill was an enthusiastic fan of Brighton and Hove Albion FC. A tribute to her was announced and a one-minute silence observed at the club’s home match on Sunday 29 October.

Correction IN THE article ‘GDPR – Eat the elephant’, which was published in the September issue of Professional in Payroll, Pensions & Reward, the period by when information must be provided was erroneously shown as 21 calendar days (see second para under ‘Individual’s rights’ on the second page.) This should have said that the information is to be provided within one month. The Editor thanks those who drew this to his attention.
