We are a public authority covered by the Equality Act 2010 specific duties.
This duty required us to publish information to demonstrate our compliance with the general equality duty across the council functions by 31 January 2012 and to update this on an annual basis.
As an authority with more than 150 employees we must also publish information on the effect that our policies and practices have had on people who share a protected characteristic. We must demonstrate the extent to which these policies and practices furthered the aims of the general equality duty for our employees and applicants.Close
- The breakdown and distribution of the workforce by monitoring information collected on the protected characteristics (age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sexual orientation)
- Caring responsibilities have also included the breakdown of monitoring information collected on applicants

This year the council has moved the date that the workforce data is published from 31 January each year to the 30 March each year. This is to bring the publishing date of equality and diversity workforce data in line with the governments gender pay gap reporting requirements.
