MPs claim public sector using gagging clauses and payoffs to hide failure

January 24, 2014 11:17 am

The Public Accounts Committee has found that public sector organisations are spending millions on “special severance payments”. Margaret Hodge MP, Chair of the Commons Public Accounts Committee, has expressed deep concern over the use of confidentiality clauses in compromise agreements to cover up. MPs were critical of government departments for their failure to properly monitor both compromise agreements and severance payments which might give early warning of problems in an organisation.
