Honoraria and Acting Up Allowances for All Groups of Staff

The process for paying an allowance or honorarium if someone will undertake higher duties for more than 6 weeks.


Where a member of staff undertakes the full duties of a higher graded post (other than to cover annual leave or short term sickness absence) for more than six consecutive weeks, they will be considered for an 'acting up allowance' to cover the period concerned.  If they do not undertake the full duties of the role, they may be appropriate to pay an honorarium.
