Compromise agreements (FOI)
Compromise agreements (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 29 October 2018.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
While the information about Charlie Parker's contract of employment is exempt under Data Protection, please confirm that the policy of not having compromise agreements amounting to so called "golden handshakes" in contracts, able to be initiated by any senior staff (as exemplified in the clause in Bill Ogley's contract) are not currently in use in any States contracts with senior officers.
As this was supposed to be a States policy, asking for confirmation in a general question about all senior staff should not be breaking Data Protection, and is also clearly in the public interest, even under GDPR.
This matter was addressed in a States question response last year and a link is provided for your information.
