Policy on Secondments

Secondment Policy


A secondment is an arrangement whereby an employee is temporarily assigned to work for another team/department in a company (internal secondment) or another company or organisation (external secondment). The idea behind a secondment is that the company ‘lends’ the secondee to the host team/department or company/organisation but the company remains the employer throughout and the secondee’s continuity of employment is maintained. For more information on secondments, see the Secondments Information Page.

This Secondment Policy sets down the general principles that apply to internal and external secondments to ensure that employees on secondment are working under fair and consistent arrangements.

The policy includes the following sections:

• Introduction;

• Contractual terms;

• Preparation for the secondment;

• Contact during the secondment;

• Difficulties during the secondment;

• Poor performance during a secondment;

• Return from a secondment; and

• Data protection.
