Please note that the above information represents the number of roles, and not the number of employees, who have been made compulsory redundant within the last three years. Some roles may not have been filled when they were made redundant, and some roles may have been held by more than one person each working less than part-time.
Due to the small numbers involved, it is not possible to provide a breakdown by hours worked and/or by role, as any further breakdown may result in the identification of individuals. As such the information is exempt under Article 25 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.
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.
