Golden brush-off

REVEALING controversial golden handshake payments to departing States employees would be ‘an unwarranted invasion of their privacy’, according to the Chief Minister’s department.

Despite having agreed that top civil servants’ annual salaries should be published in line with UK rules, the department have refused to reveal details of pay-outs, which have been rumoured to reach £500,000.
They have also refused to provide a breakdown by department, saying that it could lead to the identification of individuals.

A request by the JEP last month under the Code of Practice on Public Access to Official Information followed stories about golden handshake pay-outs to former States chief executive Bill Ogley, former Health department chief officer Mike Pollard and former Waterfront Enterprise Board managing director Steven Izatt, among others.

It has been claimed that Mr Ogley was paid £500,000 to leave his job and that Mr Pollard was paid £300,000 to leave his.

  4. Bit of a shock to learn that the JEP asked questions about the "golden handshakes" are they rebelling against the Establishment who tell them exactly what and what not to print?
