To ask the Minister of Finance and Personnel what guidance exists to quantify the distance that a person must travel to work to constitute an unreasonable offer of work from HR Connect.
The policy in relation to Mobility for civil servants is set out in the NICS HR Handbook Section 1.02. (Copy attached) There is no precise definition of the distance a person must travel to work to constitute an unreasonable offer of work, as individual circumstances would be considered against the criteria set out in paragraph 1.4 of the policy.
A copy of the NICS HR Handbook section has been placed in the Assembly Library.
