Cheshire Fire Authority has a requirement under the Localism Act 2011 to publish a pay policy statement on an annual basis. The statement sets out the Authority’s policies for the financial year relating to:
The remuneration of its chief officers.
The remuneration of its lowest paid employees.
The relationship between the pay of chief officers and that of other employees.
The requirement was introduced in order to:
Increase the accountability, transparency and fairness of the setting of local pay.
To give local people access to information to allow them to determine whether pay is appropriate.
To ensure the pay of senior staff is fair in the context of the pay of the rest of the workforce.
