Jersey government is looking to update its employee Code of Conduct after almost 20 years.

A review has been launched into the current guidelines, put together in May 2002, which include:

  • Working within the law;

  • Confidentiality and use of official information;

  • Conflict of interests;

  • Other employment;

  • Bequests;

  • Reporting of known wrongdoing or malpractice;

  • Personal expenses;

  • Gifts and hospitality; and

  • Computer misuse.

The government says it is now seeking to "reflect the standards expected of all public servants within a modernising public service".

A replacement is due to be published this June.
