6.0 Early Termination

The secondment may not be terminated unilaterally by either the staff member, line manager or the College.  If early termination is sought by either party, agreement must be reached in writing giving four weeks’ written notice.

A request for early termination from the College to another organisation will be considered alongside factors which shall include but not limited to:

  1. the staff member’s obligations to the other organisation they are working for during the secondment;
  2. the financial implications of having to terminate a  third party contract entered into as a partial or direct result of the secondment.

A request for early termination from another organisation will be considered alongside factors which shall include but not limited to:

  1. an incident which constitutes gross misconduct;
  2. the long term absence of the secondee due to ill health;
  3. the financial implications of having to terminate a  third party contract entered into as a partial or direct result of the secondment.

Staff returning to the College following external secondment, will undergo a period of re-induction back into the College and their job role.  The line manager will be responsible for organising this and the structure will be dependent on the duration of the secondment.
