We're waiting for Ajay to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service,

I would like to make a freedom of information request.

Does your service have a formal system that allows uniformed operational staff swap shifts. For example a firefighter who is due to work a Saturday can swap his work day with a firefighter who is rostered off?
if so, does your service record these swaps and keep a running tally of the swaps for the individuals?
What happens when one resigns or retires. Does your service have a way of dealing with any positive or negative balances for these swaps. For example the swap mentioned above what would happen if either of them then resigned or retired before the "pay back of the swap". Would the firefighter who got Saturday off have his final pay reduced because he never paid his day off back to the other firefighter? Or if the firefighter who worked the extra shift then retired or resigned. Would he receive a days pay for working the Saturday and the Firefighter that got the day off have to work a day to pay back the day off he got?

If you need anything clarified please contact me.

Yours faithfully,

A Jay

Barry, Gerry, Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service

Dear A Jay,

 

Thank-you for your request for information about operational employees
swapping shifts, which I am dealing with under the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

 

Does your service have a formal system that allows uniformed operational
staff swap shifts. For example a firefighter who is due to work a Saturday
can swap his work day with a firefighter who is rostered off? YES
if so, does your service record these swaps and keep a running tally of
the swaps for the individuals? YES
What happens when one resigns or retires. Does your service have a way of
dealing with any positive or negative balances for these swaps Yes.

 

For example the swap mentioned above what would happen if either of them
then resigned or retired before the "pay back of the swap". Would the
firefighter who got Saturday off have his final pay reduced because he
never paid his day off back to the other firefighter? Or if the
firefighter who worked the extra shift then retired or resigned. Would he
receive a days pay for working the Saturday and the Firefighter that got
the day off have to work a day to pay back the day off he got? No record
held of this occurring, no policy recording what would happen in this
instance – information not held.

 

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision,
you should write to the Complaints Officer at the address below, quoting

Please be advised that your request and any other correspondence
associated with it will be retained until the time has lapsed for the
request to be closed. Once the request is closed only anonymised data will
