The officer introduced the report and explained that Medium Term Financial Strategy savings had been allocated to the People Directorate and that, as part of the service efficiencies, Roxborough and Bedford House residential units had been merged.  This had resulted in the redundancies of 3.7 Full Time Equivalent staff and, given the severance package of one of those staff, the Panel’s approval was sought.  Redeployment opportunities had been considered but no suitable alternative employment for this post holder had been identified.

 

RESOLVED:  That the payment of the contractual and statutory payments to the employee, as set out in the report, be approved.
