Bonus bill for government workers revealed

Thu, 06 Feb 2014

Over £234,000 was paid out in bonuses to government staff last year.

The statistics were revealed by the Chief Minister after a request from Onchan MHK Zac Hall.

Payouts for staff working for departments, boards and offices and relevant organisations peaked in 2009 when more than £367,000 was paid.

Last year was the lowest amount paid out over the last five years.

The bonuses which are made to incentivise and/or recognise performance do not have to be approved by Treasury.
