Written answers (Question to Rural)

Since the establishment of my Department in July 2017, I can confirm that there have been no staff removed from their positions, transferred to another role or had their employment terminated due to breaches of Departmental standards or professional misconduct or incompetence.

Throughout the year all staff performance and behaviour is managed through the Performance Management and Development System and, where appropriate, through the Civil Service Management of Underperformance Policy and/or Civil Service Disciplinary Code.
