Applications for Early Retirement and/or Voluntary Redundancy for Council Employees


Consideration was given to the joint report of the Corporate Directors Resources, Adult and Health Services, Neighbourhood Services and the Human Resources Advice and Support Manager  (for copy see file of Minutes).


Members were informed that the start date in respect of the application at paragraphs 2-5 in the report should read 1 September 2013.


Councillor Armstrong referred to the financial information at Appendix 1 and noted the difference in salary between two of the applicants, despite both employees being on the same grade. The Pensions Manager informed the Member that this was due to the fewer weekly hours worked by one of the employees.


In respect of the applications at paragraphs 12-15 in the report Councillor Robinson sought an assurance that there would be no impact upon vulnerable people who received the service. The Member was informed that the posts were Manager positions and frontline staff would not be affected. Councillor Brown added that this was part of a review of how the whole service was delivered.  




That the cases of Early Retirement and Voluntary Redundancy be noted and agreed with effect from the dates specified in the report.
