The Chief Officers’ Code of Conduct requires that Chief Officers must not undertake any other employment or outside or private work except in certain very limited circumstances.
For other staff, the Council will normally allow you to undertake other paid work where there is no conflict of interest and it is unlikely to have an adverse effect on the work of the Council. You are not permitted to use the Council’s
equipment, assets or resources for any other work you do.
In terms of the Working Time Regulations (WTR’s) 1998, the Council has an obligation to monitor the hours you work to ensure that working hours do not routinely exceed 48 hours per week. If you have multiple roles and the combined working hours exceed 48 hours each week, the Council will take the necessary steps, following discussion, to ensure that the weekly working hours comply with the WTR’s.
If you hold other employment out with the Council, you should discuss this with your line manager to ensure you are adhering to the WTR’s.
