23. JURISDICTION AND GOVERNING LAW
This Agreement shall be governed and interpreted in all respects by English law and the parties irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales. The parties to this Agreement have read understood and agree to be bound by its terms.
For the purpose of the definition of “Qualifying Period” in clause 1 of this Agreement, when calculating whether any weeks completed with the Client count as continuous towards the Qualifying Period, where:
(a) You have started working during an assignment and there is a break, either between assignments or during an assignment, when You are not working;
(b) the break is: (i) for any reason and not more than six Calendar Weeks;
(ii) wholly due to the fact that You are incapable of working in consequence of sickness or injury and the break is 28 Calendar Weeks or less; paragraph
(iii) does not apply; and, if required to do so by Us, You have provided such written medical evidence as may reasonably be required;
(iii) related to pregnancy, childbirth or maternity and is at a time in a protected period, being a period beginning at the start of the pregnancy and ending at the end of the 26 weeks beginning with childbirth (being the birth of a living child or the birth of a child whether living or dead after 24 weeks of pregnancy) or, if earlier, when You return to work;
(iv) wholly for the purpose of taking time off or leave, whether statutory or contractual, to which You are otherwise entitled which is: i. ordinary, compulsory or additional maternity leave;
ii. ordinary or additional adoption leave;
iii. ordinary or additional paternity leave;
iv. time off or other leave not listed in paragraphs (iv)I, ii, or iii above; or
v. for more than one of the reasons listed in paragraphs (iv)i, ii, iii to iv above;
(v) wholly due to the fact that You are required to attend at any place in pursuance to being summoned for service as a juror and the break is 28 Calendar Weeks or less;
(vi) wholly due to a temporary cessation in the Client’s requirement for any worker to be present at the establishment and work in a particular role for a pre-determined period of time according to the established custom and practices of the Client;
(vii) wholly due to a strike, lock-out or other industrial action at the Client’s establishment; or
(viii) wholly due to more than one of the reasons listed in paragraphs (ii), (iii), (iv), (v), (vi) or (vii); and
(c) You return to work in the same role with the Client,
any weeks during which You worked for the Client before the break shall be carried forward and treated as counting towards the Qualifying Period with any weeks during which You work for the Client after the break. In addition, when calculating the number of weeks during which You have worked, where You have started working in a role during an Assignment and are unable to continue working for a reason described in paragraph (b)(iii) or (b)(iv)i., ii, or iii., for the period that is covered by one or more such reasons, You shall be deemed to be working in that role with the Client for the original intended duration or likely duration of the relevant Assignment, whichever is the longer. For the avoidance of doubt, time spent by You working during an assignment before 1 October 2011 does not count for the purposes of the definition of “Qualifying Period”.
“Temporary Work Agency” means as defined in Regulation 4 of the AWR being a person engaged in the economic activity, public or private, whether or not operating for profit, and whether or not carrying on such activity in conjunction with others, of:
(a) supplying individuals to work temporarily for and under the supervision and direction of hirers; or
(b) paying for, or receiving or forwarding payment for, the services of individuals who are supplied to work temporarily for and under the supervision and direction of hirers.
Notwithstanding paragraph (b) of this definition a person is not a Temporary Work Agency if the person is engaged in the economic activity of paying for, or receiving or forwarding payments for, the services of individuals regardless of whether the individuals are supplied to work for hirers. For the purpose of this definition, a “hirer” means a person engaged in economic activity, public or private, whether or not operating for profit, to whom individuals are supplied, to work temporarily for and under the supervision and direction of that person.
APPENDIX 1 – Disciplinary/dismissal and grievance procedure
1. GENERAL PRINCIPLES
The following general principles will apply to the disciplinary/dismissal and grievance procedures .
We retain discretion in respect of the capability procedures to take account of your length of service and to vary the procedures accordingly. If you have a short amount of service, you may not be in receipt of any warnings before dismissal.
Each step and action will be taken without unreasonable delay• The Company will investigate to establish the facts of the case and will inform You. • Whenever You are invited by Us to attend a meeting, You must take all reasonable steps to attend. • You will be permitted to be accompanied at any formal meeting. • Timing and location of meetings will be reasonable. • Meetings will be conducted in a manner that enables both You and Us to explain our case before a decision is made. • For appeal hearings We will as far as reasonably practicable, be represented by a more senior manager than attended the first meeting (unless the most senior manager attended that meeting). • Whenever You or We are required to send each other a statement a copy will suffice if the original is not available.
2. DISMISSAL AND DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES
These Dismissal and Disciplinary procedures are designed to help and encourage all employees to achieve and maintain standards of conduct, attendance and job performance. The standard disciplinary procedure is set out below.
The standard procedure will be used when We contemplate dismissing or taking formal disciplinary action against You such as that set out in paragraph 2.3 below.
2.1. Disciplinary Procedure
Step 1 Following an investigation We will set out in writing Your alleged conduct or characteristics, or other circumstances, which lead Us to contemplate dismissing or taking disciplinary action against You. We will send the statement or a copy of it to You and invite You to attend a meeting to discuss the matter.
Step 2 (1) The meeting will take place before any action is taken, except in the case where the disciplinary action consists of a suspension on full pay.
(2) The meeting must not take place unless:
- We have informed You of the ground or grounds for contemplating disciplinary action or dismissal in the form of a written statement
- You have had a reasonable opportunity to consider Your response to that information
(3) You shall be informed of Your right to be accompanied at the meeting.
(4) After the meeting, We will inform You in writing of its decision and notify You of the right to appeal against the decision if You are not satisfied with it.
Step 3 (1) If You do wish to appeal, You must inform Us within 5 working days of Your grounds of appeal, and on doing so We will invite You to attend a further meeting.
(2) The appeal meeting may not take place before the dismissal or disciplinary action takes effect but will be arranged within a reasonable period of time.
(3) After the appeal meeting, We will inform You of its final decision.
2.2. General points
2.2.1. We may suspend You with or without pay while an investigation takes place. Such a suspension will be reviewed as soon as possible and will not normally
Unauthorised use or disclosure of confidential information or business matters relating to Us, the Clients, temporary workers or applicants. exceed ten working days.
2.2.2. You have the right to be accompanied by a work colleague of Your choice during any disciplinary or grievance meetings but if Your companion is unable to attend any such meeting You may suggest an alternative date, provided it is within five working days of the original date.
2.2.3. You will not be dismissed for a first breach of discipline except in the case of gross misconduct (when the penalty may be dismissal without either notice or payment in lieu of notice).
2.2.4. Misconduct will generally fall into two categories, namely “general” misconduct (in respect of which the general disciplinary procedure described below applies) and “gross” misconduct, which is of so serious a nature that it justifies instant dismissal for a first offence. Listed below are examples of which would normally be considered to be either general misconduct or gross misconduct. However, it should be recognised that neither list can be regarded as complete to meet every case, and also that action described as general misconduct may amount to and be treated as gross misconduct if the circumstances or the manner of the misconduct are such as to warrant serious disciplinary action. These lists should be regarded therefore as being illustrative rather than exhaustive.
Examples of “gross” misconduct
Summary dismissal (dismissal without notice or pay in lieu of notice) may be necessary in cases of gross misconduct. For guidance, the following are examples of the offences which may be regarded as gross misconduct and will normally result in summary dismissal. It is emphasised that this is not an exhaustive list:
• Breach of the Data Protection Laws;
• Acts of violence, including physical assault; unlawful discrimination; drunkenness; taking of non-prescribed drugs in such a way as to impair the ability to carry out work; conduct of any kind which endangers the health and safety of others.
• A criminal offence committed at work other than a minor road traffic offence committed in the course of the employment, or an offence committed outside work which is incompatible with the employee remaining in employment.
• Falsification of information or references on appointment.
• Falsification of a timesheet.
• Unauthorised absence or gross negligence in the performance of duties.
• Acceptance of any bribe, secret profit or unauthorised commission.
• Any conduct tending to bring Us, any of the Clients or You into disrepute or which results in the loss of custom of a client, temporary worker or applicant or a loss of business.
• Working for or assisting a competitor of ours or any of our clients or seeking to establish a business which is likely to compete with Us or any of the Clients or divulging confidential information concerning Us and our business or that of the Clients.
• Refusal to obey a lawful instruction in connection with the employment, including the refusal of a suitable assignment offered by Us.
• Failure to notify Us of You’re availability or unavailability to undertake assignments.
• Poor job performance.
• Poor time-keeping.
Examples of “general” misconduct
The following may be regarded as reasons for disciplinary action in that they deviate from accepted standards and constitute general misconduct. Your first offence will usually result in a verbal or written warning as appropriate. Repetition of offences following a warning could lead to a written warning or a final written warning as appropriate. Thereafter any repetition will result in dismissal. It is again emphasised that this is not an exhaustive list:
• Failure to comply with any other conditions under the contract of employment.
• Unseemly or disruptive conduct.
2.3 Disciplinary Action
The following represents the disciplinary action that may be taken in cases of misconduct or unsatisfactory performance. The disciplinary and dismissal procedure may be implemented at any stage if the seriousness or repetitive nature of Your misconduct or unsatisfactory performance warrants such action:
STAGE 1 – INFORMAL ACTION: ORAL WARNING
If Your conduct or performance is unsatisfactory, You will be given an informal oral warning. However this will be recorded in writing on Your personnel file. The warning will be disregarded after 6 months’ satisfactory service.
STAGE 2 – FORMAL WRITTEN WARNING
If the offence is serious, or if there is no improvement in standards after informal action has been taken in cases of minor misconduct or unsatisfactory performance or there has been further misconduct within 6 months of any informal action, a written warning will be given. This written warning will include the reason for the warning and a note that, if there is no improvement after a specified period, a final written warning will be given. A copy of the written warning will be given to You and a copy will be placed on Your personnel file. The warning will be disregarded after 6 months satisfactory service.
STAGE 3 – FORMAL FINAL WRITTEN WARNING
If following a written warning, conduct or performance remains unsatisfactory, or if a serious incident occurs, a final written warning will be given making it clear that any recurrence of the offence or other serious misconduct within a specified period will result in dismissal. A copy of the written warning will be given to You and a copy will be placed on Your personnel file. The warning will then be disregarded after 12 months satisfactory service.
STAGE 4 – DISMISSAL
If there is no satisfactory improvement or if further serious misconduct occurs within 12 months, You may be dismissed either with or without notice or payment in lieu of notice.
3. GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE
This procedure should be used if You have a grievance or complaint about Your work or about those You work with. Where possible You should try to raise the matter informally in the first instance.
Step 1 You must set out Your grievance in writing and send this statement to the Company.
Step 2 We will invite You to attend a meeting to discuss Your grievance.
The meeting must not take place unless:
- You have informed Us of the basis for the grievance set out in the statement under step 1
- We have had a reasonable opportunity to consider its response to that information
After the meeting We will inform You of its decision, and We will notify You of Your right to appeal if You are not satisfied with it.
Step 3 If You do wish to appeal, You must inform Us within 5 working days of Your grounds of appeal, and if You do so We will invite You to attend a further meeting. After the appeal meeting, We will inform You of our final decision.
