Who can take action under the Procedure

The Procedure for the non-renewal of a fixed term contract provides for the ‘nominated manager’ to take action which may result in the dismissal of an employee engaged on a fixed term contract, where dismissal arises from the non-renewal of this fixed term contract.

The ‘nominated manager’ should be at an appropriate level of seniority in the College or Service. In most cases this will be the line manager of the employee. Where necessary, this should be clarified with Human Resources. The ‘nominated manager’ should take advice from their HR Business Partner and attend appropriate training arranged by the Director of Human Resources.
