The number of entitled to work only and entitled (Control of Housing and Work (Jersey) Law 2012) people in permanent full-time employment in 2014 and 2015.


Information on employment in Jersey is derived from the manpower returns submitted by undertakings as required by the Control of Housing and Work (Jersey) Law 2012. Numbers recorded through the manpower returns are numbers of jobs filled. 

The Jersey Labour Market reports published by the States of Jersey Statistics Unit present a count of jobs filled, ie not a count of unique individual employees. Some individuals will be counted more than once in the numbers if they are employed in more than one job with different undertakings. 

The Jersey Labour Market reports are available on the States of Jersey website at the following link:

Exemption(s) and Regulations

Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.

To derive the number of unique individuals employed in permanent full-time entitled/entitled to work jobs would require more than 12.5 hours of work.
