FOI Request - Council Employees Dismissed

Request 101000315143

I am seeking information on the total number council employees dismissed for their behaviour on social media sites, including posting items online which the council deemed inappropriate in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

For each employee dismissed, could you outline the reasons for their dismissal and what they posted on social media?

I would also like details on the number of council employees subject to a written warning for their behaviour on social media sites in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

For each employee given a verbal warning, could you outline the reasons for their warning and what they posted on social media.

If the release of any of this information is prohibited on the grounds of breach of confidence, I ask that you supply me with copies of the confidentiality agreement and remind you that information should not be treated as confidential if such an agreement has not been signed.
