Statement on behalf of Hilton Parish Council

Staff Matters:

On several occasions in recent months residents have asked Councillors questions about Hilton Parish Councils employee’s contracts of employment, terms and conditions, job descriptions, working hours and job titles. Despite the answers already being given and following the receipt of Q&A sheets at Forums and Coffee Mornings being put on the Council website and available at Parish Council meetings.

Hilton Parish Council would like to make it clear that any staff matters are solely between the Council and its employees, all information is strictly private and confidential and covered under the General Data Protection Regulations therefore, any such matters will not be discussed with residents. What staff do outside of their working hours is their business and is of no concern to Hilton Parish Council as long as it does not impact on their contracted working hours or their daily tasks.
