CMC confirms redundancies
QUEENSLAND'S crime and corruption watchdog has confirmed 13 staff have been made redundant as part of the Newman Government's job cuts.
Crime and Misconduct Commission chief Ross Martin told an estimates hearing at Parliament House last month that the organisation was not immune from the government's budget reductions.
He said 44 people had left the CMC between July 1 and October 11 and he expected about 30 roles to be "dis-established", indicating there could be an overlap.
The CMC on Wednesday announced "with regret" that 13 staff were impacted by redundancies, effective November 23.
The organisation has dis-established 26 positions, including the 13 staff and some overlap for the 44 people who had left the CMC.
