Re-employment or retired staff (FOI)

Re-employment or retired staff (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 29 October 2019.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Current States policy stipulates that any states employee retiring from their current states post cannot have another states post for 6 months and 1 day. I am aware of numerous states employees and appointees who have retired from their current states position and commenced another states post days later. 2.8.1 of the re employment guide, employment attached below:

Re-employment guidelines


What date was this policy / guidance introduced please?


How many States / Government personnel have been employed by the States / Government of Jersey (ie personnel having retired from one states post and starting into another states post) without the six month and one day period passing since this policy / guidance has been introduced.


Of those numbers how many have been ex police officers?


Of those numbers quoted how many have had a business case made and signed of for their new employment?


How many are employed having not had a business case signed off and have not had a break of six months and one day from their first day of retirement.



20 June 2016.


Due to the small numbers involved disclosure control has been applied to the data in order to protect the identity of individuals, in accordance with Article 25 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.

Less than five people have been employed since January 2019 where a retirement had previously taken place within the time period limited by the policy. There were specific conditions and reasons in each instance, outlined in a business case to gain approval for the exception. This does not include employees who may undertake work for the Government in a capacity other than as a direct employee.


Due to the small numbers referenced in question B above, this request is exempt under Article 25 (Personal information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.


The cases referred to in question B above had waivers agreed.


None since January 2019

Article applied

Article 25 Personal information

(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018.

(2) Information is absolutely exempt information if –

(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018; and

(b) its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.

(3) In determining for the purposes of this Article whether the lawfulness principle in Article 8(1)(a) of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 would be contravened by the disclosure of information, paragraph 5(1) of Schedule 2 to that Law (legitimate interests) is to be read as if sub-paragraph (b) (which disapplies the provision where the controller is a public authority) were omitted.
