Former head of the B.C. Lottery Corporation Michael Graydon has paid back more than $55,000 that he was paid from Feb. 4 to March 31 — when he was in talks for a position with a private gaming company while employed by government.
On Thursday, the BCLC said its lawyers have agreed with Graydon to pay back the amount, which includes the total salary and holdback during the time period.
“BCLC did not request repayment of $30,960 in vacation pay as Mr. Graydon is legally entitled to these funds,” the Crown corporation said.
The conflict of interest case spurred Victoria into recommending new restrictions on post-employment work for some government staff.
