Compressed and Part-Time Hours and Rest Days

In April 2020, after lengthy negotiations by the PSA, the Home Secretary agreed changes to regulations, amending Annex E, F and H which provide flexible working opportunities for the superintending ranks.
These changes introduce:

  • Part-time working for the superintending ranks, allowing payment for extra work up to a 40 hour working week; 
  • days off in lieu for superintendents with compressed working weeks who have to work on their additional day(s) off; and 
  • an ‘exceptional clause’ enabling superintendents to carry over rest days for a further 12 months in exceptional circumstances, at the discretion of the Chief Constable
