Audience: This Notice will be of particular interest to:

  • All managers who have responsibility for telling APACs about early departures of staff

Action: Agree with your APAC the cut-off date for giving them notice of staff who will be taking early severance or early retirement before 31 March 2010.

Timing: Immediate

  1. If you want to be billed in the current financial year for staff leaving on early severance or early retirement terms on or before 31 March 2010, your APAC must ensure that awards for those cases arrive with Capita Hartshead by 1 March 2010 at the very latest. You will need to get these cases to your APAC in good time for them to process and send the awards to Capita Hartshead by 1 March.
  2. If you are likely to be releasing people on early severance or early retirement terms before 31 March, you must get in touch with your APAC now to agree the latest date for telling them about those who are leaving. (Early departure costs for those with a last day of service on or after 31 March will be charged to you in 2010-2011)
