Discrimination proposals explained

Share this page

Monday 16 March 2020

Earlier this month the Committee for Employment & Social Security published a Policy Letter outlining proposals for new discrimination legislation.

The Committee intends that these will be debated by the States before the end of the political term. The Committee have now released a summary of their proposals for new discrimination legislation alongside an easy read version. These are available at: www.gov.gg/discrimination.

Deputy Michelle Le Clerc said:

"We know that the Policy Letter is long and that some parts of the discrimination legislation proposals are quite technical. Some of our stakeholders will want that level of detail but not everyone will. We have now published a summary that should make the proposals easier to understand for people with a general interest. These proposals are important for everyone on the island and we want people to know what the States are discussing."

If agreed by the States, legislation would be drafted to make discrimination on the grounds of carer status, disability and race unlawful. Depending on the drafting process, it is anticipated that this would come into force in 2022.
