All employees are suspended on grounds of gross misconduct. Suspension is a neutral act while an investigation into the allegation is carried out.
The following tables show:
the total suspensions for each year 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 to date
the number of employees suspended per year
the total number of days of all suspensions for those years
the average length of each suspension
the total cost of all suspensions in each year

Average length of suspension (days)
Number of suspensions by department:
All departments with the exception of the Economic Development department had at least one person suspended in one or more of the years.
If the information was broken down any further (ie by department), it may be possible to identify employees (former or current), and as this information is personal information it is exempt under Article 25 of the Freedom of Information Jersey) Law 2011 (the “FOI Law”), which refers to personal information.
The information cannot be disclosed because its disclosure to a member of the public would contravene one or more of the data protection principles, which are set out in Part 1 of Schedule 1 to the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2005.
As a public authority, the States of Jersey must observe all of the data protection principles when processing personal data. The exemption from the duty to disclose personal data, where to do so would breach a data protection principle, is an absolute exemption, therefore the public interest test in Part 2 of the FOI Law does not apply.
Outcome of suspensions:
