Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 08 September 2021.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
How much overtime has been paid out to staff in the treasury departments compared to the years 2017 and 2018 ideally broken down into the sections such as cashiers, payments, payroll, tax)?
How much flexi-time did staff have in the years 2017 and 2018, and can this be compared to any overtime / additional paid work to staff to compensate for hours they
previously worked as flexi-time, but for which they now get paid?
How many staff contracts have been changed or updated to reflect new working hours? For example, someone who previously only worked 20 hours in the office can now work 35 as they will do the additional hours at home?
Can this be reported in staff numbers that benefit from this, the additional hours that can be worked and the amount of any additional payments?
Will the flexible work hours be returned to staff with the easing of the Covid-19 restrictions and will staff return to their original contracts?
