21.Public Duties You are entitled to reasonable time off during working hours to perform the duties associated with certain positions, such as Justices of the Peace, school governors, members of a local authority, statutory tribunal or police authority. You are not, however, entitled to payment for this time. If you are considering taking on any public duties you are advised to discuss this with your line manager. You would need to consider how frequently and what level of time off you would wish for. Your line manager would need to consider whether the proposed time off would be reasonable and what impact it would have on the effective running of the Company. 22.Staff Discount Scheme The Company runs a Staff Discount Scheme for employees who have successfully completed their probationary period. From time to time the Scheme is amended and the Company reserves the right to change it or withdraw it at any time without notice. Currently the Scheme provides 30% off wholesale prices for eligible staff members. The Scheme is intended to allow staff to buy Stormtech products for their own use and that of family and friends. Staff members are not allowed to sell goods on that they have purchased under this Scheme. Any abuse of the Scheme would result in disciplinary action and could result in dismissal. 23.
