Behind closed doors


What happens to a council boss accused of unacceptable behaviour, of having “cast a bad reflection on the city” and who was found in a tribunal to have “failed to comply with the basic requirements of natural justice”?

In Dundee they get invited into a closed door meeting where they are given a promotion and £20,000 pay rise. Despite being an unmitigated failure in her previous role and been found to have ignored “correct legal advice”, the good councillors of Dundee found it acceptable to hand Janet Robertson a £80,000 pa  job which was not advertised internally or externally.

Looking forward to how the honourable Cllr Ken Guild spins this one.
