Dear South Staffordshire District Council,
Please supply Annual totals for the followig:
As far as records go back, the annual figures for the total
of current employees / ex-employees (including teaching staff) of the Council who have signed compromise agreements directly related to the resolving of dispute(s) / grievance(s) / internal and external investigation(s) / whistleblowing incident(s).
In addition to this, annual figures for the number of current employees / ex-employees (including teaching staff) who have agreed, following the matter being raised and made conditional as part of a compromise agreement drawn up by the body acting as the Council's legal team, to sign and forgo their right to approach the council in the future with Freedom of Information and/or DPA Subject Access requests under the relevant Acts.
Please provide the figures in the following format e.g. 2006 - 2; 2007 - 4; 2008 - 1; 2010 - 6; etc.
Please note that I do not seek or require any personal information such as names and addresses – only the total figures for each subject area.
Please find a response to your Freedom of Information request.
As far as our records go back, the only compromise agreement signed was
as follows: 2010 - 1 and did not require the employee to forgo their
right to approach the Council in the future with regard to FOI or DPA.
