Staffordshire council bosses suspended on full pay
Two senior employees earning more than £156,000 between them are receiving full pay after being suspended last year, a council says.
Head of human resources Lisa Cartwright and head of strategic property Jamie MacDonald were suspended in December in what Staffordshire County Council said were unrelated cases.
A spokesman said it was not yet known when the situation would be resolved.
The council declined to comment on why the pair were suspended.
The human resources head is paid £84,030 a year and the head of strategic property receives £72,297, according to the authority's publicly available pay policy document for 2017/18.
Council chief executive John Henderson declined to comment on why the employees were suspended but said the situation was pending disciplinary investigations.
Mr Henderson said: "Suspension is a neutral act that protects the employee and other interested parties so that further investigations can take place.
"It would not be appropriate to make any further comment at this time."
