Guernsey’s politicians have agreed to an historic anti-discrimination law.

The law defends people being discriminated against for their race, disability, sexual orientation, religious beliefs and anyone who provides care or support for a person with a disability.

The Institute of Directors, Chamber of Commerce, international Business Association, Confederation of Guernsey Industry and the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development released a joint statement about the change.

The business groups welcome the Assembly’s decision to approve the proposals for the new discrimination ordinance. We hope to work alongside government and other stakeholders throughout the legislative process to ensure a smooth and successful implementation.
