Employment contract (w p management limited)

  1. 1. W P MANAGEMENT LIMITED CONDITIONS OF SERVICE (PRINCIPAL STATEMENT ) MEMBERS OF STAFF 1. General WP Management Limited is a subsidiary of Wivenhoe Enterprises, a Company wholly owned by the University of Essex. Appointments are made in one of the grades in the structure of the Company. Rates of pay are reviewed annually by the Company. 2. Working Week The normal working week of full-time staff is 36 hours, to be spread over five days which may include Saturday or Sunday, as agreed with your Manager. The working hours of part-time staff are as agreed on appointment or as subsequently amended. When, by agreement with your Manager, hours in excess of 36 are worked in any one week, overtime payments will be made at the rate of time and a half, except that hours worked on a Sunday or seventh consecutive working day shall be paid at the rate of double time. NB The definition of the pay week is Monday to Sunday.
  2. 2. When work on a public holiday is required, payment will be made at double time and equivalent time off work will be given at a later date. 3. Holidays The holiday entitlement of a full-time member of staff is 20 working days each complete leave year. Holidays are to be taken at the discretion of the individual, subject to the approval of your Manager, who will not unreasonably withhold consent. In addition to the above a full-time member of staff is also entitled to a holiday with pay on each of the 8 statutory public holidays (New Year's Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, May Day, Spring Bank Holiday, Late Summer Bank Holiday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, or their equivalent), and on 3 other working days when the Company is closed during Christmas. Full-time staff are also entitled to long service leave, as follows:- a) Staff completing one year of continuous service will be entitled to one additional day of annual leave. b) Staff completing two years of continuous service will be entitled to a further additional day of annual leave. c) Staff completing three years of continuous service will be entitled to a further additional day of annual leave. d) Staff completing five years of continuous service will be entitled to one further additional day of annual leave.
  3. 3. e) Staff completing seven years of continuous service will be entitled to one further additional day of annual leave. f) Staff completing twelve years of continuous service will be entitled to a final additional day of annual leave. Part-time members of staff are entitled to paid holiday on a pro rata basis to the entitlement of fulltime members of staff. Part-time members of staff are entitled to holiday with pay for public holidays and days of Company closure, only in respect of such days as may fall during periods when they would normally have been at work. An example of the calculation of the holiday entitlement for a part-time member of staff would be: 3 days (worked per week) x 20 (full-time basic entitlement = 12 days of holiday 5 days (full week) Part-time staff are also entitled to have long service holiday taken into account in the calculation of holiday entitlement, for example: 3 days (worked per week) x 20 (basic) + 3 (long service) = 13.8 = 14 days of leave after 3 5 days (full week) years of service The holiday year runs from 1 April to 31 March. Holiday entitlement in the first and last years of service shall be pro rata to the number of completed months' service in that period: for this purpose a half day or more of holiday entitlement shall be counted as one full day.
  4. 4. On termination of employment, holiday entitlement will be calculated to the nearest full month worked. If a member of staff has taken holiday which has not been earned, then any such excess paid holiday will be deducted from the final salary/wage payment. Alternatively if it has not been possible for a member of staff to take his/her full earned holiday entitlement upon termination of employment, then an appropriate addition will be made to the final salary/wage payment. It should be noted that unused holiday entitlement cannot normally be carried over from one leave year to the next. 4. Pension Scheme Staff are eligible to contribute to the Universities' Superannuation Scheme (USS) immediately upon commencing an appointment. Initially a member of USS will contribute 6.35% of his/her salary and initially the University will contribute 14%. Staff contributing to USS are contracted out of the State Earnings Related Pension Scheme (SERPS). Unless, prior to commencing an appointment, a member of staff elects in writing not to contribute to USS, he/she will be deemed to be a member of USS from the start of an appointment and contributions will be deducted accordingly. Staff will be able if they wish, subsequently, to withdraw from USS and to change to the State Earnings Related Pension Scheme (SERPS) or a Personal Pension by giving the required notice and completing the appropriate form available from the Finance Section. Staff who elect not to contribute to USS from the commencement of appointment will either be subject to the provisions of SERPS or contribute to a Personal Pension Scheme. The University will make the minimum contributions required by legislation to a Personal Pension Scheme. Staff in post at 29th February 2004 and already subject to the provisions of either the Essex County Council Pension Scheme or the University of Essex Pension Scheme, retain the right to continue in membership of these schemes.
  5. 5. Further details about USS are available from the Finance Section. 5. Sick Pay A member of staff who is prevented by illness from reporting for duty shall notify their Manager as early as possible on the first day of absence. When it is required, in accordance with the terms of the sick pay scheme, that a personal sickness certificate or a doctor's medical certificate be submitted, it must be sent without delay to your Manager. A document setting out the arrangements at present in force for sick leave and sick pay is attached. 6. Probation and Permanency Staff will normally be appointed subject to confirmation after a probationary period of six months. Probationary periods may be extended by a period of up to three months, subject to the agreement of the Director of Personnel Services. A member of staff who has already satisfactorily completed a probationary period in a similar post at the University would not normally be expected to complete a further period of probationary employment. 7. Maternity Leave A document setting out the arrangements for Statutory Maternity Pay and Maternity Leave is available from the Personnel Office. 8. Paternity Leave Wivenhoe Park Management grants, on certain conditions, 10 days of paid paternity leave to a member of staff whose wife or partner is pregnant or who plans to adopt a baby. Further details are available from the Personnel Office.
  6. 6. 9. Payment Payment is made monthly in arrears by direct credit into a bank or building society account. 10. Notice Temporary appointments may be terminated by either side giving one weeks's notice in writing. The appointment of permanent staff may be terminated by either side giving one month's notice in writing. The amount of notice of termination of the employment which an employee is entitled to receive increases to five weeks after five years' continuous employment and thereafter by an additional week for each complete additional year of service up to a maximum of twelve weeks' notice after twelve years' or more continuous service. 11. Previous Service Periods of previous service with an employer other than the University of Essex or Wivenhoe Park Management Limited do not count as continuous with current employment. 12. Retirement The retirement date (ie. Last day of service) for all members of staff is the day before the 65th birthday.
  7. 7. Any employee (male or female) wishing to retire earlier than 65 will be allowed to do so, where it is in the interests of the Company to agree to this. 13. Trade Union Membership The Company give representational rights on an individual basis to UNISON. 14. Individual Grievances A grievance relating to your employment should be discussed in the first instance with your immediate supervisor. Further steps are set out in the Grievance Procedure, a copy of which is available for reference in the Personnel Office or your Manager's office. 15. Disciplinary Matters Details of the procedures for dealing with disciplinary matters and disciplinary rules may be consulted in the Personnel Office or your Manager's office. If you wish to complain about formal disciplinary action taken against you, you should do so by writing within a period of seven days to the Personnel Office, who will refer you to that section of the disciplinary procedures which relates to the hearing of such complaints. 16. Medical Examination An employee may be required to undergo a medical examination at the Company's expense.
