Equality Screening: September 2013 - December 2013

During the period of 1st September 2013 to 31st December 2013 the Assembly Commission screened one policy. The policy, policy aims and the outcome of the screening exercise is detailed in the table below.

Redeployment Protocol

In December, the HR office revised the Redeployment Protocol to include provision for AG5 staff to make application to move to another post within the Secretariat for development purposes.

The aim of the Redeployment Protocol is to outline the processes which exist to redeploy staff to other posts within the Assembly Secretariat. It demonstrates the transparent and open approach in which the Assembly Commission will manage redeployment in order to support its commitment of no compulsory severance programmes in achieving future staff complement targets during the period of the Spending Review.

Application to move to another post may be made under any of four categories: Medical, Surplus, Work/Life Balance and Career Development. Under the initial Protocol, application to transfer for career development reasons was restricted to staff at AG8, AG7 and AG6 levels. This option has now also been opened to staff at AG5 level.
