Conditions of Service
- How much leave am I entitled to for a bereavement?
The recommended entitlement in the event of the death of a near relative or other relative who is a member of the household is up to 3 days’ leave with pay.
The recommended entitlement in the event of the death of other relative who is not a member of the household is 1 day’s leave with pay (2 days if extensive travel is involved).
The recommended entitlement for attendance at a funeral other than a relative is leave with pay (for the minimum part of the day required) if attendance is a necessary social duty
- I am teaching many more exam classes than my colleagues and subsequently I have an unfair workload. How can I ensure a fair workload?
The Workload Agreement (TNC2011/8) requires Boards of Governors to ensure (2.2i.):
“That workloads will continue to be managed in an open, fair and equitable way at departmental/school level and that all staff are able to challenge unfair and/or unreasonable workload.”
Raise your concerns with your line manager and direct them to the Workload Agreement.If this does not resolve the issue contact your Northern Committee Rep for further advice.
