Compromise Agreements

Request Description

I request the following;

1.       For each of the last five financial years (10/11 - 14/15) what was the total number of employees who signed compromise agreements when they left the council?

2.       For each of the last five financial years how much was paid in total to departing employees as part of the compromise agreements? 

I would like separate entries for each financial year rather than one set of data covering the five-year period.

The council has signed compromise agreements with 8 individuals between 2010 and 2015.

Due to the small number of individuals entering such agreements, and the low level of staff turnover at East Herts Council, the council believes that the individuals concerned would be readily identifiable from any more detailed breakdown of the data.  The council therefore believes that releasing  a detailed breakdown would be a breach of the Data Protection rights of those individuals
