documents, (e.g. medical/international travel/accommodation etc) for example,
beside their salary, what else they wil get/ peaks etc.
Some of the information you have requested is included in the following attachment:
• International salaries and benefits spreadsheet
Please see the ‘Benefits’ sheet in the attached spreadsheet for an overview of standard
benefits provided across locations. Your request for the relevant benefit documents is being
refused under sections 18(a) and 18(f) of the Act. Benefits may be negotiated on an
individual basis, and we would not release this information in order to protect the privacy of
the individuals concerned. Benefits vary between countries and individuals, and documents
