Compliance with the Civil Service Code of Standards and Behaviour is a condition of employment within the Department of Justice. Where a breach of the Code arises it is dealt with in accordance with the Civil Service Disciplinary Code (Circular 19/2016) which contains a range of sanctions up to and including termination of employment.

Since 2011 one individual was given a written warning and assigned to another area of the Department for a breach of the Code of Standards and Behaviour and 15 individuals have had their employment terminated for non-performance issues as outlined in the table below.
