Staff made redundant

Can you provide me with the total number of staff that were made redundant by the council for each of the following financial years…


Can you provide me with the total cost of those redundancies for each year?

Can you provide me with the number of staff employed by the council in each of those years?

Can you also provide the name of the department each role was lost from?

Please see the table setting out the spreadsheet of available information which can be accessed via the link below:


Where reference is made to “Others” this refers to a collation of numbers from other departments as the totals from those departments are very low. A disclosure of redundancies and the cost for that financial year would therefore risk identifying the previous employees of Devon County Council and the redundancy payment that was made. This is special category information for that individual as defined by the first data protection principle and a further breakdown is therefore exempt from disclosure pursuant to s.40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
