Restriction on employment by Council

Mark made this Freedom of Information request to Manchester City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Manchester City Council,

I understand that currently, Manchester City Council will not employ people outside of the councils tax area. I would like to know what areas this covers as I have spoken with an employment representative and he has refused to state which areas of greater manchester are currently included.

I would also like any and all documents and emails as to the reason the decision to exclude people from other tax bands from there selection criteria for local jobs, along with any documents between the councils legal team as to whether such discrimination is legal

Yours faithfully,


Manchester City Council
