As pay negotiations are ongoing, Article 39 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied to this request.

Article Applied

Article 39 Employment

Information is qualified exempt information if its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice pay or conditions negotiations that are being held between a public authority and –

(a) an employee or prospective employee of the authority; or

(b) representatives of the employees of the authority.


The Scheduled Public Authority (SPA) is withholding this information as it believes that to release it at this time could prejudice ongoing negotiations between the employer and its recognised trade unions.

Article 39 is a qualified exemption, which means that a public interest test is required to be undertaken by the SPA. It is therefore necessary for the scheduled public authority to examine the circumstances of the case. Following assessment the SPA has to decide whether, on balance, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information. Although there is a need for transparency, accountability, and good decision making by public authorities this information relates to negotiations between the States of Jersey and their employees. On balance, it is our view that the public interest does not outweigh the potential prejudice of release.
