HM Treasury has published their further consultation on the implementation of an exit payments cap. The consultation can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/restricting-exit-payments-in-the-public-sector
Exit payments at the ending of employment, including redundancy, are used to help implement change eg through restructuring or how services are resourced. The government is concerned about the number of exit payments made to public sector workers that exceed, or come close to, £100,000 and want such payments to be proportionate and fair to the taxpayer.
We encourage all councils to individually submit a response directly to the Government.
