  • Restriction of Public Sector Exit Payment Regulations

    They've been a long time coming but the Restriction of Public Sector Exit Payment Regulations 2020 are finally due to arrive. First suggested in late 2015, the Regulations have been published and will take effect from 4 November 2020. The central plank of the Regulations is the cap of £95,000 on exit payments made by public sector bodies to employees or office holders.
