Total Figures for Compromise Agreements

Paul Cardin made this Freedom of Information request to Herefordshire 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 successful.

Dear Herefordshire Council,

Further to an FoI request I made to yourselves and other councils in 2011, as follows:

http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/to...

I’m now updating my research and would like to ask you for the latest information along similar lines. Please forward the next batch of information as follows:

The figures for the total number of current employees / ex-employees 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). Please forward the relevant total figure between the end date of my last request (above) and today’s date i.e. the period that has elapsed since you last provided a response.

I note from the last request that you considered yourselves to be in a position to properly comply and address such a request as the information is now collected "separately". Here is a quote from your reply at the time:

"I confirm that your request has prompted the council to record information on compromise agreements separately in future, as we recognise that there is a public interest in this area. Whilst we cannot provide the information retrospectively, we will be able to going forward."

I would therefore expect to receive a full response in the next 20 working days and would not expect this request to become subject to an exemption based on costs, nor indeed any other exemption,

Best regards,

Paul Cardin

Dear Herefordshire Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Herefordshire Council's handling of my FOI request 'Total Figures for Compromise Agreements'

COT3 agreements, by definition, are NOT compromise agreements. Please carry out a review, led by a senior officer and fulfil the requirements that were clearly set out in the original request.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:
http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/to...

Yours faithfully,

Paul Cardin
