In their 9 January 2015 issue the Eye wrote:
“Staff who complained about a flawed new IT system at Herefordshire Council were bullied by managers – and then paid to keep quiet.
“Up to 20 victims received compensation, while three senior managers were sent on their way with fat cheques. All had to sign gagging orders.
Pay-offs totalled hundreds of thousands of pounds, but the Tory–Independent coalition refused to reveal the precise price of silence.”
Congratulations, Herefordshire Council!
