The Guernsey Disability Alliance is pleased that after twelve years of campaigning and six years of working with the government and with other stake holders, including representatives from business, that the Committee for Employment and Social security have published the long awaited Policy Letter concerning proposals for multi-ground discrimination legislation that addresses many of the concerns expressed by all sides.

 

The GDA however, does still have a number of questions about the proposals, but we are pleased that the Policy Letter provides a foundation on which to go forward.

 

We will continue to engage with all stakeholders and to address the concerns expressed by some in the business community. We are confident that many of these will be addressed through the debate in the States Assembly.

 

We also note that the Policy Letter contains proposals for a review mechanism that might help resolve any issues that have not been resolved during implementation.

 

Members: please don’t forget our Member meeting Tuesday 24th March with ESS deputies and staff 7pm at Les Cotils, Harry Bound room.
