Discrimination, Bullying and Harassment
Discrimination (Jersey) Law 2013
The Discrimination (Jersey) Law 2013 covers Race, Sex, Age and Disability.
A guidance note together with a detailed guide have been produced which give employers and employees a greater understanding of the Law. The detailed guide contains a number of examples which will help the reader to understand the terms direct and indirect discrimination; harassment; victimisation; protected characteristic and the exceptions to the Law.
Employers are encouraged to review their policies, so as to ensure that they are compliant with the Law. To assist Employers, we have prepared an Employers' Checklist.
To help employers develop and introduce policies and procedures that support their objectives to be non-discriminatory, JACS has developed a number of guidelines and model policies.
