Copy of letter to Kevin Reid from Sylvia
Clovey, Personnel Officer, The Labour Party
We would like to offer you a part-time position of
Media Assistant based at the Scottish Labour Party, Glasgow, commencing
on 26 May 1998 and terminating on 30 June 1999. You will be required
to work 15 hours per week, the days and hours to be agreed with
your line manager.
The salary for the post is £4,000 per annum
which will be paid monthly by credit transfer direct to your bank
account. Salaries are paid on 6th of each month; therefore we
would require your bank details and P.45 (if available) as soon
as possible. As you commenced work on 26th May, any arrears will
be incorporated in your July salary.
You will be entitled to holiday pay at 2 and 1/12
days for each complete month of service during the first calendar
year (rounded to the nearest half day), thereafter 25 days annual
holiday, in additional to any public holiday entitlement.
For your information, I enclose a copy of the Memorandum
of Agreement (under review) which contains the main terms and
conditions under which you will be employed. Also enclosed for
your signature are a Confidentiality Agreement and some background
information about the party.
Unfortunately, it is the policy of the Superannuation
Society that staff employed on a contract for two years or less
are not eligible to participate in the pension fund. You would
therefore need to make alternative arrangements to cover any pension
requirements during this period of employment.
As a condition of this offer, you are required to
agree, by signing the enclosed copy of this letter to confirm
your acceptance of the offer, that upon expiry of the term of
this contract you have excluded any claim in respect of unfair
dismissal and any rights to a redundancy payment.
I hereby accept the offer of a fixed-term contract
as set out above, including the waiver of rights to claims in
respect of unfair dismissal and redundancy pay on expiry of this
Signed [Kevin Reid]
19 June 1998
