FOI Request Senior Council Officials Severance Payments
I would like to know:
1. What was the total paid out to SENIOR council officials in exit packages between the financial years 2016-2017? This is including but not limited to pensions, benefits, severance payments and annual salaries given to those who left their job.
- By left their job, I mean workers who were laid off, whose jobs were eliminated, who decided to leave the company through mutual agreement, who were made redundant, who retired, who resigned or who parted ways with the company for other reasons.
2. I would like these figures to be broken down by job title i.e. £100,000 paid to executive director of finance and customer services.
3. I would like the total remuneration - including but not limited to pensions, benefits, severance payments and annual salaries given to council officials who left their job (for the same reasons as listed above) for the five financial years prior to this. The information here need not be broken down by job title and individual payout just the lump total for each year.
Note: By ‘SENIOR’ officials, I mean either those who are defined as such within your council’s own definition, or those who are on a salary of £50,000 or over if your council does not have its own way of defining a ‘senior’ official.
There were no severance payments/exit packages paid to Senior Council Officials in 2016/17.
