In the absence of any exceptional circumstances which render it necessary in the best interests of the Council to do so, the Council will generally not reengage any individual whom has previously been employed by the Council and left that employment with the benefit of a severance, early retirement or redundancy payment under voluntary arrangements. This principle will apply whether such re-engagement is to be under a contract of employment, contract of services or otherwise.
