This guidance is for managers and staff and sets out how Time off in Lieu (TOIL) will operate at Oxford Brookes University.
TOIL is defined as time off, taken with prior agreement from the line manager, when an employee has been asked by the Head of Department (Senior Staff Level), or equivalent level manager, to work beyond their contracted hours to complete a specific piece of work as set out in the section headed “TOIL - Definition”, which is voluntary. It is not part of normal flexible working arrangements. This policy overrides any previous local practice. As different practices have existed in different areas of the University this new policy will take immediate effect except in Faculties/Directorates where any one member of staff has more than 50 hours of TOIL already banked. Where any member of staff has more than 50 hours of TOIL banked, the whole Faculty/Directorate will have a lead in time of 3 months to allow banked TOIL hours to be reduced down to meet the maximum allowed under this policy (50 hours).
This TOIL policy does not currently apply to field trips.
This policy replaces all existing policies or practices whether formal or informal at Oxford Brookes University.
