Members are being reminded of the need to apply for annual leave using the My Time portal.
And Cliff Tomkinson, the West Midlands Police Federation personnel and equality lead, says that if My Time is offline, officers should make their applications via Shared Services or by sending an email to supervisors.
“It is important for there to be an audit trail,” says Cliff, “Then, if there are issues with officers being declined leave, there is evidence of their submissions and the responses they have received."
“I would not say this has been a big issue but there have been problems with the process. Nonetheless, where there are repeated instances where officers have been refused annual leave it is difficult to argue the case when there is no supporting evidence. Being able to evidence to the Force in writing any difficulties an officer has in obtaining leave is very powerful indeed.”
