Special leave

The University supports members of staff undertaking specific public duties and will take all reasonable steps to try to accommodate your absence from the workplace. Any member of our staff may be eligible for paid special leave for commitments such as court service, military service and trade union duties.

Routine options such as reorganising your work among colleagues, suspending the work or arranging for temporary agency cover will be explored to cover your absence.

Our guidance below provides further information about the University’s special leave policy.
