As the prospect of bad weather approaches, make sure you’re up to date on the new principles and guidance from HR.

The revised guidance is a point of reference for all managers, managing colleagues who are impacted by adverse weather conditions, including disruption to public transport and transport routes.

It details the principles that managers should adhere to, including the aim of the University to operate a ‘business as usual’ approach in as many areas as possible, and options for colleagues who are unable to attend work.

The guidance covers:

  • Reporting arrangements and expected communication between staff and managers
  • Supporting staff when carer arrangements are disrupted
  • Remote and flexible working
  • Where to seek regular updates during periods of adverse weather.

Please can all line managers ensure that reporting arrangements for adverse weather are clearly communicated to your team.
