Armed Forces Reserve

If an employee belongs to the Territorial Army Defence or Reserve Forces and wishes to attend the two week annual camp, the Company will allow them to have one week’s additional paid leave for this purpose; the second week will be granted against their normal holiday entitlement.  If they wish to take advantage of this provision, they must obtain prior approval from a member of the Management Team with relevant proof of current membership.

The Company is aware that employees who are members of Territorial Army Defence or Reserve Forces may be called-up at any time to be used on full-time operations and will be expected to attend regular training.

Once an employee’s military service has ended they may submit a written application for reinstatement to their employment.  This should be made by the third Monday following the end of their military service and they should notify the Company of the date on which they will be available to restart work.
