5.0 Keeping In Touch With External Secondees

A staff member on a secondment should supply their line manager with contact details for the period of the secondment and notify them if these details change.

The staff member and line manager should maintain reasonable contact during the secondment period to ensure objectives are being met and make the return to work easier for both parties. The staff member and line manager should discuss what kind of contact there will be in advance of the secondment commencing.

The staff member must continue to report sickness and submit annual leave requests according to the College’s policies.  They must also, as a courtesy to the secondment host, report their planned and unplanned absences.

The line manager is responsible for keeping the staff member on secondment informed of any significant workplace developments which may be relevant to their employment.

The staff member on secondment is expected to maintain any professional links and keep up-to-date with any significant developments in their area of work.
