The Committee for Employment & Social Security ("the Committee") is keen to hear people's views regarding the Sex Discrimination (Employment) (Guernsey) Ordinance, 2005 (as amended) ("the Sex Discrimination Ordinance"), Guernsey's only piece of discrimination legislation.
The Sex Discrimination Ordinance covers discrimination in the field of employment on the grounds of sex, gender reassignment and being married. It is likely that the Committee will suggest that the Sex Discrimination Ordinance is repealed and relevant provisions incorporated into new multi-ground discrimination legislation (see further information here www.gov.gg/discrimination).
The Committee is particularly interested to hear from people who have views on the Sex Discrimination Ordinance, either as employees who have experienced or witnessed discrimination, employers or HR professionals, trade union representatives or people who practice employment law.
Two versions of the consultation questionnaire are available:
- A general consultation aimed at employees who have experienced or witnessed discrimination, employers and HR professionals can be completed by following the link, this should take approximately 30 minutes to complete: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SDOrdinance
- A technical version of the consultation aimed at lawyers and those with a more in depth understanding of the Sex Discrimination Ordinance can be completed by following the link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SDOrdinanceTech
Please answer the version most appropriate to you. The consultation will close on 26th October and a high-level summary of findings will be published in December 2018.
Should you require any further information, or copies of the consultation in alternative formats, please contact us at email@example.com or call 01481 732546.
The Committee intends to carry out a wider public consultation regarding its draft proposals for new multi-ground discrimination legislation in 2019 before taking a Policy Letter to the States for consideration.
