Relationships at work model policy

The aim of this model policy on relationships at work is to provide a framework that schools can adopt to to ensure personal relationships at work are dealt with fairly and consistently.


Our model policies and policy checklists are designed to assist NEU reps in negotiating the best employment policies on behalf of our members.

Reps should strive to ensure policies are compliant with the NEU models.

Reps should consult members before agreeing new policies or changes to existing policies and should not agree policies that do not meet member expectations, any statutory requirements and NEU minimums.

Reps should always seek to work collaboratively with other unions. 

If a policy is unacceptable, members should consider a collective response that may include taking industrial action. For further advice contact your NEU branch.
