University Statute approved by Privy Council

Human Resources are pleased to announce that the Privy Council has formally approved the University’s reformed Statute 7. With effect from Monday 17 August, all staff will now be covered by Statute 7 – which was previously only applicable to staff in grades 7 and above.

Statute 7 is the University Statute that sets out how key employment matters (such as grievance resolution, performance improvement and discipline) are to be managed. The revised processes are clear, transparent and will provide a consistent and equal approach to how employment matters are handled.

If you want to find out more about the reform process, view the revised Statute and the associated Ordinances (procedures), please visit the ‘Reforming Statute 7’ section of the HR website:
