Staff Suspensions and Sickness

Rick Thomas made this Freedom of Information request to North East Combined Authority

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 North East Combined Authority,

I am requesting the following under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

1 - The total number of staff suspended from duty in each of the years below (whatever the outcome - resign, returned to work, dismissed) and to be clear I am not requesting a number by breakdown - just the total per year (so if A was suspended in Jan 2017 and returned to work in Mar 2017 that would be 1 person suspended).

• 2017 (to date)
• 2016
• 2015
• 2014

2 - The total salary payment made to suspended staff whilst suspended from duty for each of the years in Q1 above.

3 - The total number of sickness reports attributed to the following conditions for the financial years (or whichever period is used for monitoring this statistic within your authority)

2012 to 2017 (or latest data);

• stress at work
• anxiety
• depression

4 - The number of working days lost - due to sick leave attributed to the following conditions for the financial years (or whichever period is used for monitoring this statistic within your authority)

2012 to 2017 (or latest data);;

• stress at work
• anxiety
• depression

With respect to Q1 - if the answer is less than 5 (and as such might be judged as possible to identify people) please just indicate less than 5.

With respect to questions 3 and 4 please provide the data for the nearest equivalent measure on your systems (e.g. I asked for "stress at work", however, if your metric is "work-related stress" please provide that data). I am also only interested in work-related stress, not any other causes (home etc).

I am happy to receive the data in any format that is most convenient. The data will be used to benchmark against other similar Local Authorities in the area.

Yours faithfully,

Rick Thomas
