To receive and note a report (if submitted to this meeting) giving details of employees currently subject to this policy and related financial implications. The redundancy and redeployment policy with its associated procedures is a change management process within the Council designed to provide appropriate corporate assessment, support and learning interventions for those whose substantive posts are under threat.
