The Director of Corporate enforcement Paul Appleby retired from his
position a day before retiring from the Civil Service, and made an extra
€300,000 by doing so.
The Irish Examiner's Mary Regan, who obtained the details under a
Freedom of Information request, reports this morning that Appleby may
not have been entitled to early retirement from his role from the ODCE
but it wasn't an established post within the civil service. Appleby
proposed to retire in January of this year and the details of his
retirement plans are detailed in the correspondence to the Department of
Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.
As a result his last 24 hours in the civil service were spent as a
principle officer. Appleby subsequently agreed to stay on in the role
for a further six months on an interim basis.
