Reduction in Force: AG’s Review of Denial of Info is Complete

If you require a recap of last year’s Reduction in Force (RIF) plan and how the Request for Review under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) came about, please see New Developments in Reduction in Force Story.

The results of the AG’s review, in short:

  • In the matter of the denial of the cost-benefit analysis used to decide on the RIF plan: The denial was proper under FOIA exemptions for collective bargaining.

  • In the matter of the denial of the Voluntary Separation Agreement (VSP) for management employees: The city misunderstood the request and will make this document available.

  • Find the June 14 letter from the AG’s Public Access Counselor after the jump.
