The Ombudsman reviewed a closed meeting held by council for the Norfolk County to discuss reducing service levels in the municipality by eliminating staff positions and consolidating municipal facilities under the “labour relations” exception. The Ombudsman found generally discussions about organizational reviews do not fit within this exception. However, in this case, the committee’s discussions referenced identifiable employees and their roles. The discussion fit within the “labour relations” exception.
