Flexitime and leave arrangements from October 2021 – new guidelines
By Bethan Smith, on 20 September 2021
Further guidance available on LibNet
The new Library Services guidelines for flexible working patterns and the management of leave is now available on LibNet. The key changes are the removal of the MyFlexi system and the switch to using MyHR for absence requests, and local team arrangements for flexible working patterns and TOIL.
Please note that library staff will no longer be able to log into the MyFlexi system from Friday 1st October. The Library HR team will retain access during the decommissioning process for the system.
For flexitime balances remaining on MyFlexi, line managers will shortly be sent details of any positive balances, to transfer into their local recording, and negative balances will be discarded.
Flexitime manager briefing sessions
A series of informal sessions is available for line managers, if you have any questions about local implementation of the policy. Please contact Bethan Smith to book your place on one of these slots.
The dates and times of the sessions are as follows:
Monday 27th September, 14:00 – 15:00, led by Jennifer Brown and Karen Jeger
Monday 4th October, 10:00 -11:00, led by Peter Dennison and Martin Moyle
Thursday 14th October, 14:00 -15:00, led by Kate Cheney and June Hedges
Friday 22nd October, 11:00 -12:00, led by Ben Meunier and Margaret Stone
Logging working patterns on MyHR
As we are in the process of returning to campus, it may be the case that your work pattern has recently changed (i.e. the number of hours you work per day). If you have changed your hours worked per day, as long as your overall FTE has not changed, you will need to record these in MyHR once the changes have been confirmed with your line manager.
Please note that you do not need to record whether you are working at home or in the office in MyHR and will only need to confirm the hours worked per day.
Carry over reminder
Additionally, as detailed in the previous announcement on flexitime and leave arrangements, the deadline for submitting carry over of annual leave to Library HR was 15th September.
If you wish to have annual leave carry over into the next leave year, but did not submit this to Library HR by the deadline, you will need to update this manually on MyHR after 1st October.
Please note that it may take some time for carry over to appear on MyHR; any carry over submitted may not have transferred by 1st October, but should transfer shortly afterwards. If you submitted your carry over request to Library HR by the 15th September deadline, and do not see your carry over added to MyHR on 1st October, please do not try to manually add this to MyHR.
Please do use MyHR to submit and manage leave requests for dates beyond 1st October 2021.
