Met Office: Bonuses

Volume 712: debated on Monday 5 October 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they propose to pay bonuses to staff at the Met Office this year; and, if so, on what basis. [HL5403]

Met Office staff will be eligible to receive bonuses based on performance against specific targets agreed and monitored by the Met Office board, which are linked to the success of the Met Office at either individual, team or organisational level. Bonus payments are non-consolidated and represent part of Met Office staff remuneration which is at risk and needs to be re-earned each year.
