additional day’s leave?
Yes, if you were in the employment of the Council on 9 June 2022.
Anyone who was employed by the Council on 9 June 2022 or before, is entitled to this day.
No, you must be an employee of the Council.
You can choose what day to take as long as it is agreed with your manager and taking into account service delivery requirements
This is still being discussed with the trade unions and you will be advised in due course.
No, the purpose of the day is to give you a full day of rest.
If you work for Facility Support Services, you should discuss this with your line manager, but you should get your requested day as long as it can be operationally accommodated. For all other term time workers in schools, discussions are ongoing with the trade unions as to whether or not an inservice day will be used for this purpose.
If you have more than one job with the Council, you only get one day off which may mean that you are on leave from multiple posts on the same day. You do not get a separate day for each job you do.
No, the principle is for the day off to be enjoyed, therefore a person leaving the Council should be advised to use it or they will lose it.
No, they should have time to take the extra day on their return to work. If they do not return to work, they will not receive compensation for it.
As with any other leave, this must be approved by the manager and in line with service requirements.
