EXIT PAYMENTS: Struggling to close the revolving door

31 October 2014  

The government’s proposals to recover public sector exit payments are commendable but flawed, argues Maeve Vickery

The government consultation paper, Recovery of public sector exit payments, was published on 25 June 2014 by HM Treasury. The paper sets out a series of proposals intended to allow recoupment of exit payments from high earners returning to the same part of the public sector within 12 months of leaving. The intention is that the Small Business Enterprise and Employment Bill will include legislative provisions to this effect.
