Discrimination (Jersey) Law 2013
With the introduction of Disability to the list of protected characteristics and the removal of retirement age (both from 1 September 2018) revisions have been made to the guidance note together with a detailed guide (covering Race, Sex, Age & Disability protected characteristics). 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 Employer Checklist. For Employees we have produced a chart to assist if you think you have received less favourable treatment.
