There is no specific protection against third party harassment in the proposals agreed by the States.

Original Policy Proposals (2019)

Irish position on third party harassment included

Consultation Feedback (2019-2020)

The UK has repealed section 40 of the Equality Act 2010 in relation to third party harassment. Jersey does not have a specific provision relating to third party harassment.

Final – What the States have Agreed (2020)

Moved from the Irish to the UK position so there is no specific protection against third party harassment, but employers should still take reasonable steps to prevent harassment.

The absence of a third party harassment provision does not necessarily remove the possibility of someone raising a discrimination complaint or a complaint under another section of the legislation if they feel that an employer or service provider’s handling of a situation included different treatment or harassment on the basis of one of the protected grounds.
