“C1666 EMPLOYEE PAY POLICY (HRE) (SCRUTINY - CORPORATE RESOURCES)
(Urgent by reason of the need to comply with the provisions of the Localism Act by 31st March, 2012)
Cabinet was requested to consider and endorse the Council's Pay Policy as required by the Localism Act 2011.
The Council had a statutory requirement under the Localism Act 2011 to prepare a pay policy statement. The first statement had to be approved and published by 31st March, 2012.
The Policy had been produced on the basis of statutory guidance, and with advice from the Welsh Local Government Association and would be reviewed and updated on an annual basis in accordance with the requirements of the Act.
The Policy would provide a framework for ensuring that employees were rewarded fairly and objectively in accordance with the service needs of the Council and that there was openness and transparency in relation to the process.
The Policy was now able to reflect the provisions of the Green Book/Single Status Pay Structure as set out in the collective agreement as signed by the Unions in December 2011, and as implemented on 1st March, 2012.
This was a matter for decision by Full Council.
RESOLVED - T H A T the Pay Policy as attached at Appendix A to the report be endorsed and referred to Full Council for approval.
Reason for decision
To respond to the legal requirement under the Localism Act and to provide openness and accountability in how the Council rewards its staff.”
