Is the RIBA paying ‘hush money’ to departed staff?

One ‘concerned member of the public’ contacted Astragal claiming that: ‘Anybody made redundant has to sign an agreement saying they won’t speak about it. If you sign the agreement and don’t talk about the RIBA, you will receive your redundancy money. A lot of the staff are too afraid to speak.’

Bearing in mind the RIBA’s charitable status, it is hard to imagine that the sums on offer in return for silence could possibly outweigh any contractual obligation.

An RIBA spokesperson said: ‘The RIBA does not comment on private matters relating to employees.’ So News International!
