As part of our Transformation programme UKRI is introducing a streamlined HR policy framework for employees from 06 January 2020, resulting in common terms and conditions for non-pay related aspects of employment across UKRI.
This HR policy framework has been agreed with Trade Unions, significantly reducing the number of HR policies and incorporating much of the local HR policy across UKRI.
In summary there are no changes to policy except that shared parental pay can now be claimed over a longer period of time and greater discretion is given to line management, particularly in agreeing special leave requests.
Please note Reward, including pay and allowances, pension provision and employee benefits fall outside of the scope of the changes so will continue as is and can be found below. All other policies can be found on the UKRI Staff Infohub.
If you have any questions, please contact the UKRI HR policy mailbox and we will engage within 48 hours.
