Decision Maker: Council, Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Agreed that the without prejudice settlement agreed by Cabinet on 17 October 2018 and noted below is funded as described in the Assistant Director of Finance & Deputy s151 Officer’s comments in paragraph 9 of the report.


Noted the decision of Cabinet on 17 October 2018 that;

a. the formula used to calculate the annual leave allowance for term time only staff is revised and that this is effected from 1st April 2018.

b. that a settlement sum is offered equivalent to the shortfall to affected term time only staff backdated for 5 years 3 months from 1st April 2018 to 1st January 2013. This represents the difference between the annualised hours already received and annualised hours due under the new formula. This payment will count as pensionable in the year it is paid and will not amend any pensionable service.

c. that term time only staff with less than 5 years and 3 months continuous service receive settlement sums to reflect their length of service with RBG, GS Plus and GSS.

d. that a payment of £50 for each year of continuous pensionable service is made in recognition of pensionable service up to 31st March 2014 for any term time only employee who was a member of the Local Government Pension scheme and has not received a refund.
