An Employment Matter

Report of the Human Resources Manager (West)

Minutes:

The HR Manager introduced a report regarding an employment matter and informed members that in 2014 a decision was taken by Andrew North to remove the Director Wellbeing & Culture Post from the TUPE transfer list to the Cheltenham Trust. This resulted in the post holder’s employment remaining with the Council. The post holder was consulted at the time and was aware that her role was then at risk of redundancy if no permanent suitable alternative role was forthcoming.

 

The post holder was offered a two year fixed term position and for part of the role was seconded to Ubico Ltd. The fixed term role has now come to an end and although offered a further temporary period of employment the post holder has now stated she does not deem the offer a suitable alternative to her former substantive role. The committee is now being asked to approve the dismissal, by reason of compulsory redundancy, of the former Director Health and Wellbeing.

 

RESOLVED THAT, the redundancy, including pay in lieu of notice, of the former Director Wellbeing and Culture be approved.
