Worker at Rehab given €300,000 redundancy pay-off
One departing staff member at Rehab received salary and redundancy payments of between €300,000 and €310,000 last year.
That is according to the charity's 2015 annual report which shows it paid out redundancy sums of €1m to its departing staff. This followed €3.2m paid out in redundancy to its best paid staff in 2014.
Total remuneration, including redundancy costs to Rehab's General Management Team last year amounted to €2.49m.
The €1m redundancy pay-out to its best paid staff allowed another employee to receive through salary and redundancy payments between €270,000 and €280,000 last year.
The amount that Rehab received through 'Lottery and donations' plunged by 44.5pc going from €7.5m to €4.1m.
The report confirms that current CEO, Mo Flynn receives a salary of €140,000.
Rehab agreed new pay levels from the start of 2015 representing an average salary reduction of 18.55pc for top earners.
The organisation's total staff bill for 2015 was €96m with 3,234 employed. Rehab last year recorded a modest profit of €32,000 after revenues increased from €159m to €160m.
This represents a significant improvement on 2014 when a loss of €3.3m was made, chiefly from redundancy costs.
A statement from Rehab yesterday stated: "Rehab has moved beyond the issues which arose in 2014. A strong foundation has now been created for the organisation as it pursues its Five Year Strategic Plan, which places people at the very heart of everything that it does."
