The engagement of legal services in relation to the recent Fire and Rescue Service Association Employment Tribunal Case lies primarily with the Law Officers’ Department.
The Law Officers’ Department is not a scheduled public authority under the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 (FOI Law) and therefore there is no right under Article 8 of the FOI Law to request information held by the Law Officers’ Department.
The Law Officer’s Department have noted that they intend to release financial data in relation to the Jersey Fire and Rescue Association tribunal case after legal proceedings have concluded.
