Gag On This

My sympathies to the good people of Wales who, thanks to their local councils, have forked out (via their council taxes) around £32M over the last ten years on gagging order agreements in severance deals.

The Western Mail made a series of FOI requests to Wales’ 22 local authorities, of which all but one replied. The requests revealed that 1,347 settlement agreements contained clauses which bar former employees from challenging their exits in employment tribunals or in court, or speaking out against their employers in the media. A total of 981 were agreed by Wales’ largest authority, Cardiff council, alone.

The FOI responses, which illustrate the cost of the agreements as a whole and do not detail costs of clauses specifically, also revealed more than a third involved employees who worked with children or vulnerable people.

Lee Canning, coordinator for the Taxpayers’ Alliance in Wales, said:
Local authorities are there to serve local communities, not to gag former staff members restricting transparency.

Measures such as so-called compromise agreements demonstrate the blatant disregard these local authorities have for local taxpayers.”
Nanny hates her subjects knowing what she is up to, and really loathes it when her mistakes are made public!

    This country appears to be becoming more and more like a police state, and it now seems that we even have the "privilege" of paying for it!
