Public sector pay inequality - all non-London councils

We're waiting for Emily Thomas to read recent responses and update the status.

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act (2000) to request information pertaining to public sector pay inequality. The following are a list of questions that I would like a response on;

• How many persons does your council employ?
• How many council employees are employed as apprentices, and how much is their pay per hour?
• How many council employees are employed on a salary equal or less than a full-time equivalent of £14,942.20 per year?
• How many council employees are employed on a salary equal to or less than a full-time equivalent of £16,380 (in London £19,201) per year?
• How many council employees are employed on a salary equal to or less than a full-time equivalent of £29,588 per year?
• How many council employees are employed on a salary equal to or greater than a full-time equivalent of £46,351 per year?
• What are the non-pecuniary benefits or expenses available to stage employed in roles with full-time equivalent salaries equal to or greater than £46,351 per year?

If you can identify any ways that my request could be refined, I would be grateful for any further advice and assistance.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me via email and I will be pleased to clarify what I am asking for and discuss the request.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Emily Thomas

Dear Emily,

Thank you for your request received 20/09/19under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA) for Council employees information.

 

Unfortunately, the Council is unable to identify the information you have
requested from the details in your request.

 

This is because we will need clarification for question 7.

 

Please could they clarify what you mean by ‘stage employed in roles’?

 

We won’t be able to deal with your request until you provide the
additional information.    

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 says that we must comply with your
request for information within 20 working days, from the date following
receipt of your request unless we have to ask for clarification, as in
this case. The 20 day response deadline clock has stopped from the date of
this email, the clock will reset from the date we receive your response
clarifying your request and we will advise you of the new 20 working day
deadline at this stage.

Unfortunately, if we don’t hear from you by 06/12/19 , we will send you a
refusal notice because we have not received all the information we need to
deal with your request.  

Please contact us if you have any queries or concerns …

Dear Emily Thomas,

Thank you for your clarification response.

Your request is being considered and you will receive the information requested as soon as possible, but in any case by 29 November the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI) unless the information requested is subject to a statutory exemption on disclosure or the information contains reference to a third party.
If your request does not include all the information we need or is not clear, we will contact you for more information (clarification). In these circumstances, the 20 working response deadline will start the next working day after we receive your clarification response.

For your information, the Act defines a number of exemptions, which may prevent release of the information you have requested. Some exemptions are subject to a public interest test. There will be an assessment and if any of the exemption categories apply and any relevant public interest test is weighed in favour of withholding the information it will not be released. You will be informed if this is the case, including your rights of appeal.

If the information you request contains reference to a third party then they may need to be consulted before a decision is taken on whether the information can be released to you. You will be informed if this is the case.

There may be a fee payable for supplying the information in the form of disbursements. This will be calculated and you will be informed if a fee is payable. The fee must be paid before the information is released and the 20 working day time limit for responses is suspended until payment is made. You will have 3 calendar months to submit your payment.

If you have any queries or concerns then please contact the

provisions of the [1]Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015
and has been made available for re-use under the [2]Open Government
Licence (OGL) a request to re-use is not required, but the licence
conditions must be met.

 

If the information provided is owned by someone else, you must get
permission from them to reuse the information. 

 

If you are dissatisfied with the response to your request, you can ask for
an internal review under our [3]FOI & EIR complaints procedure .  Please

Information Governance Officer (FOI)

The Council House

Derby
DE1 2FS

Telephone 01332 640763 or e-mail [Derby City Council request email]
<<<[4]mailto:[Derby City Council request email]>>>

You may also apply to the Information Commissioner for a decision under
section 50 of the Act but he may decline to deal with your application if
you have not followed the Council’s complaints procedure first.

 

Information Commissioner's Office

Please note, the following applies, if the response includes council
officers (or other officers) names.

 

If you are a company that intends to use the names and contact details of
council officers (or other officers) provided for direct marketing, you
need to be registered with the Information Commissioner to process
personal data for this purpose. You must also check that the individual
(whom you wish to contact for direct marketing purposes) is not registered
with one of the Preference Services to prevent Direct Marketing. If they
are you must adhere to this preference. You must also ensure you comply
with the Privacy Electronic and Communications Regulations (PECR). For
more information follow this Link [6]www.ico.org.uk

 

For the avoidance of doubt the provision of council (and other) officer
names and contact details under FOI does not give consent to receive
direct marketing via any media and expressly does not constitute a ‘soft
opt-in’ under PECR.

Yours sincerely,
