The States has agreed to build the existing services used to administer employment and discrimination legislation. The service developments needed to implement the legislation go beyond simply expanding capacity. The new legislation will be more complex and will cover service provision as well as employment. Current governance standards fall short of those seen in comparator jurisdictions such as Jersey and the UK.
The States has also agreed to a proactive and preventative approach to change attitudes and raise awareness to reduce instances of unlawful acts and to ensure that disputes can be resolved as quickly and informally as possible.
The Employment and Equal Opportunities Service (EEOS) will be the new body.
