Pay during adverse weather – new University policy

A new policy on pay during adverse weather has been published by HR.

The new policy, ‘Pay during periods of severe weather conditions/major transport disruption’, replaces the HR Adverse Weather Guidance for Managers.

The  new policy outlines pay arrangements and responsibilities for all University staff during adverse weather conditions and is based on the recognition and appreciation that staff make every reasonable effort to attend work during bad weather.

In line with all previous and current policies, the University will not normally close during bad weather, but there may be circumstances when a reduction to essential services only is declared.

All managers and staff are encouraged to read through the new policy ahead of winter.
