Decision details

Staff Overtime Payments

Decision Maker: Managing Director

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


In responding to the Emergency Covid-19 some Officers have worked in excess of what they would normally work and accumulated time which contractually the Council needs to treat either as overtime or as time off in lieu (TOIL). During the same period some planned leave has not been taken to ensure that critical services can be delivered to the community. The impact of this is that some Officers will have substantial time owed to them by the end of May. If this is granted as TOIL and then put alongside annual leave it could result in some Officers being away from work for an extended period of time.


•Option 3 agreed - That for the Covid-19 emergency period the cap on payment in the current overtime policy is relaxed and all staff are paid any accrued overtime at their grade (rate of pay) from the 23rd March to the 28th May (subject to review).
•Gold agreed that no one from CLT would claim overtime.
•It was agreed that overtime costs for additional time worked during this period would be claimed back from the Welsh Government Hardship Fund.
