Event Details

The public sector equality duty came into force in April 2011 and replaced the gender equality duty. Public sector employers have a legal obligation to eliminate unlawful discrimination, advance equality of opportunity, and foster good relations between women and men.

The new specific duties have just come into force in Scotland. Unions reps will need to know how to use the new duties for the benefit of their members and to ensure equality in the workplace.   

This FREE seminar will look at:

  • the principles of the public sector equality duty
  • equality impact assessment and the role of union reps; and
  • some practical examples of how union reps can use the duty.
