The Complaints Panel considers complaints by the public against decisions taken by Ministers or civil servants within Departments in Jersey. Cases are generally only accepted when the internal complaints process within a department has been exhausted. The members of the Complaints Panel are not politicians or civil servants and are all completely independent. They give their services on a completely voluntary basis. If any member of the Panel, has a conflict of interest, they will not take part in a hearing. In that way, the public can be sure that the consideration of a complaint is completely unbiased and impartial. The work of the Complaints Panel mirrors that of an Ombudsman and is of great value to the Island, but has no cost to the taxpayer.
