Jersey States Employment Board have survived a vote of no confidence.
The motion was brought by Deputy Mike Higgins, following the board's handling of the dismissal of a medical consultant.
Surgeon Amar Alwitry had been due to take up his post at Jersey General Hospital as a consultant eye surgeon in 2012 but at the last minute the offer was revoked.
Amar Alwitry says it was because he raised concerns about practises and officials did not like it.
An investigation by the States Complaints Board, which concluded Alwitry's treatment had been 'appallingly shabby,' prompted Deputy Higgins to bring the motion of no confidence.
The Health Minister at the time was Deputy Anne Pryke, who said that Mr Alwitry showed a lack of consideration for others and demonstrated that he was 'not a team player.'
But Mr Alwitry, who lives in Nottinghamshire, strongly disputes those claims;
Despite criticisms of the States Employment Board, the motion of no confidence was defeated. Thirteen politicians voted in favour of it, while 30 voted against it.
There were two abstentions.
