Holiday and Sickness
Holiday will be agreed with your line manager. The Evertime system will set aside a percentage of your pay whenever you work, which will be shown as a cash equivalent.
Whenever you’re ready to take your leave, you may draw down from this accrued pot to cover your holiday(s).
Agency staff are allowed to take holiday subject to manager agreement, in a similar way to permanent staff.
If you are sick, please contact us straight away in the morning, as we may need to refill your booking for that day. If you are sick on a weekend booking, please ring the client immediately and ensure you ring us to let us know on Monday morning. There is always a member of staff in the Red Snapper office from 8.00am.
You may be eligible for Statutory Sick Pay if you meet the relevant criteria. We reserve the right to terminate your booking due to sickness.
Whilst you are on assignment, the client’s Health & Safety Policy will outline health and safety measures relating to COVID-19 in the workplace.
By law, the client must ensure the following procedures are adhered to:
- Identify what work activity or situations might cause transmission of the virus.
Consider who could be at risk, how likely it is that someone could be exposed and act to remove the activity or situation, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk.
- We have listed some practical measures to help you. This includes taking reasonable steps to protect yourself and others from coronavirus.
- Where possible you should keep people 2 metres apart. If this is not viable, keeping 1 metre apart with risk mitigation is acceptable.
- Maintain personal hygiene and handwashing where possible.
- Keeping your workspace clean and organised, reducing the potential for coronavirus to spread.
- When indoors, wear face coverings over your mouth and nose where possible.
Public Health England report disparities in the risk and outcomes of COVID-19 which shows that some groups of people may be at more risk of being infected and/or experience a more adverse outcome if infected. You should consider this in your own risk assessment.
You can get up-to-date information about guidance and support on COVID-19 through the GOV.UK site.
You should contact us and the client as soon as possible, if you have been exposed or potentially exposed to COVID-19. You should also contact us if you have any concerns or queries relating to COVID-19 rules, regulations and adherance in the workplace.
