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
Data and reports from previous years are available in the related document area below:
This year the council moved the date that workforce data is collected on from 1 April to 1 October each year. This is to ensure that workforce data is as up-to-date as possible on the publishing date, which is at the end of January each year. An interim equality and diversity report is available to cover the gap created by the date change.
