Wbc won't have a policy for this but that practice would be classed as fraud and they do have a policy for that.

Dear Mr Lerner

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. Please see the
Council's response below.

 

1.            Has Wirral Borough Council got a specific policy on  council
officers who manipulate the established staff rota to generate excessive
overtime hours for themselves?

2.            Is there a designated department or person/officer who could
be contacted to investigate such a practice?

 

 

Wirral Council does not have a specific policy on 'council officers who
manipulate the established staff rota to generate excessive overtime hours
for themselves'.

 

The Premium Payments policy (attached) sets out what is available for
recompense for working additional hours (overtime), the eligibility
criteria and procedure.

 

I trust this information is of interest to you.

 

Yours sincerely
