Senior Staff Scheme and age days
A Senior Staff Scheme is available to ensure that senior employees can continue to perform effectively within their job. Read about whether you qualify for this scheme.
Depending on your age and the nature of your work at the university, you may currently still be entitled to age-based leave days. These days allow you to take additional leave. The number of age days available to you will remain the same as of 2013 and they will disappear completely starting in 2018.
Transitional arrangement for the Senior Staff Scheme
There is a transitional arrangement for the Senior Staff Scheme. Paragraphs 8, 9 and 10 of Appendix B outline all the specifics of this arrangement. If you were already participating in the Senior Staff Scheme on January 1st 2013, you may continue to take part until you reach the official pensionable age. Special arrangements will be made for senior employees who are not eligible for the transitional arrangement, with a focus on more age aware personnel policy.
