Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions

Members of staff are governed by the Leicester Joint Agreement or Leicester Manual and Ancillary Agreement, which were introduced upon implementation of the national Framework Agreement for the Modernisation of Pay and Grading Structures agreed by the Joint Negotiating Committee for Higher Education Staff (JNCHES).

Details of key areas, such as standard working hours and notice periods, can be found within the agreement documents.

Since the implementation of Framework, the University has introduced a new statute for staff (Statute 8) and set of Staff Ordinances, which cover 9 contractual policy areas: Discipline, Grievance, Probation, Performance Management, Ill Health Capability, Redundancy, Dismissal for Some Other Substantion Reason, Removal from Office and Academic Freedom.  You can find more information about the Staff Ordinances in a dedicated area of our website.

The remaining terms and conditions for all members of staff at the University are currently under review.

Please contact HR if you need any further advice or information.
