P_HR_41 Annual Leave Policy
The purpose of this policy is to implement a co-ordinated and uniform approach to the taking of Annual Leave which applies to all members of staff within the remit of their current contractual agreement.
The organisation supports the enhancement of a work-life balance for all staff where it is important to promote consistency and equality, ensuring that there is no discrimination or inequity which may affect one group to benefit less than other groups.
Annual leave will be inclusive and pro rata of 8 bank holidays and will be accrued and taken in line with this policy so as to ensure that all staff whether part time or full time, flexible or non-flexible have consistent and equal entitlements.
Managers must ensure that individual needs are balanced with service needs and ensure there is an agreed and clearly understood local protocol. Compliance with the policy will be the responsibility of all staff. This policy covers all members of staff within the remit of their current contractual agreement. Medical staff are covered under their own Terms and Conditions.
