People and Money implementation

This information and guidance is still correct and continues to apply until further notice.

Further information on policies relating to absences from work is available via the link below (e.g Jury Duty, Attending a Funeral).

Leave and absence options

In the case of any other unplanned absence (e.g Severe Weather Policy, unforeseen Emergency) staff must notify absent@inf.ed.ac.uk and follow the process of sickness absence. Note that there is no statutory entitlement to leave in such cases, however, the School will consider each case individually. Depending on the circumstances an employee may be required to use annual leave to cover a period of absence.
