Policy—adverse weather and travel disruption

    1. 1

      Introduction

      1. 1.1

        The Company recognises that during periods of severe weather or when there are disruptions to public transport, staff may face difficulties in getting to and from [their usual place of] work and a flexible approach to work arrangements may therefore be necessary.

      1. 1.2

        The Company expects its staff:

        1. 1.2.1

          to attend for work unless authorised leave (for example annual holiday, sick leave, maternity leave) is being taken;

        1. 1.2.2

          to make reasonable efforts to get to work in all circumstances;

        1. 1.2.3

          where usual travel arrangements have broken down or are otherwise unavailable, to explore all possible alternative modes of transport, including walking or cycling if distance allows and it is safe to do so; and

        1. 1.2.4

          where travel difficulties are predictable, to work with [the Company OR your line manager OR HR] to prepare for such eventualities.

      1. 1.3

        The Company is committed to protecting the health and safety of its workforce. You are not expected to put yourself at unnecessary risk in travelling. However, the Company must ensure that any disruption caused to the [Company OR business OR services it provides] is minimised and therefore expects all employees to take the minimum steps outlined in paragraph 1.2.
