Policy and Procedure regarding Leave for Elected Representatives of Local Authorities 2012

The HSE recognises the importance of recognition of civic leadership, the representational role of councillors and the role of local government in community development, and is pleased to support employees who participate in the democratic representation of local communities. The HSE has drawn up a procedure to ensure that appropriate leave arrangements are made available to those employees elected to local authorities.

This policy allows for the provision of leave, consistent with service need, for HSE employees who are elected representatives of local authorities to attend meetings and activities of those authorities.
