Pay policy statement

Payments on termination

Our approach to (statutory and) discretionary payments on termination of employment of chief officers, prior to reaching normal retirement age, is set out within our policy statement in accordance with Regulations 5 and 6 of the Local Government (Early Termination of Employment) (Discretionary Compensation) Regulations 2006.

Any other payments falling outside the provisions or the relevant periods of contractual notice shall be subject to a formal decision made by the full council or relevant elected members, committee or panel of elected members with delegated authority to approve such payments.
