Annual leave carry-over arrangements from 2021/22

The recent EMT decision is that we that we maintain the ICB’s position within the annual leave policy in that staff will be able to carry over a maximum of 5 days annual leave into the next leave year (2022/23).

For staff that work full-time and record their annual leave in hours due to their working pattern, the maximum carry-over provisions will be 37.5 hours. For staff that are part-time, it will be the 5 days/27.5 hours pro-rata.

Approval to carry-over up to 10 days can be given in exceptional circumstances. In these instances, the relevant approvals must be obtained from the relevant Director, Executive Director and HR.
