Amendments to the Pay Policy Statement and Associated Policies
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
The Assistant Director Human Resources and Organisational Development, Jon Bell, presented a report which proposed an amendment to the Council’s current Pay Policy Statement and the introduction of a Policy for Payments for Additional Responsibilities and Outstanding Contributions.
The Committee sought reassurance that the Policy would be applied consistently across the Council’s directorates and services. Members were advised that managers would need to make a recommendation to a Chief Officer and the Assistant Director Human Resources and Organisational Development which would ensure some consistency in the approach. It was agreed that a report should be presented to a future meeting of the Committee on the application of the Policy.
RESOLVED that the Committee:
1. Approve the Policy for Additional Payments and Outstanding Contributions attached at Appendix A.
2. Approve the proposal to abolish the limits to Reward and Recognition payments.
3. Agree amendments to the Council’s 2021/22 Pay Policy Statement which reflect the changes in 1 and 2 above (as set out in Appendix B) and refer the Statement to Full Council for approval.
4. Request that a report on the application of the Policy for Additional Payments and Outstanding Contributions be reported to a future meeting of the Committee.
