WSCC: buying and selling annual leave


WSCC: buying and selling annual leave

After a vote by some staff on the council’s ‘Big Conversation’ web page, WSCC is thinking about introducing a scheme for buying and selling annual leave (this would not affect staff in schools).

There are more concerns than meet the eye about this particular policy development. For example, if my colleague can buy additional leave, what will that do to the workload in my team? It may be good for the individual who buys leave, but bad for the rest of the team who have to pick up their work!

We are discussing with the Council their proposals for a new policy, and highlighting a range of safeguards we think must be taken into account,

We really want to understand your views though, to inform our negotiations and the council's understanding.
