Preparing for Equal Pay Statements on Race Seminar
10.30 - 12.30 (followed by lunch)
Thursday 4th December
STUC Centre, 333 Woodlands Road, Glasgow G3 6NG
Close the Gap are hosting the first free seminar in the CEMVO Scotland's Mainstreaming Race Equality series on Thursday 4 December.
The specific duties which came into force in Scotland on 27th May 2012 required public bodies to gather employment information on race and to publish that information. Public bodies will further be required to publish a statement on equal pay which includes ethnicity from 30th April 2017.
Whilst this is still some time away, evidence suggests that employment information gathered across the public sector continues to hold many gaps – for example, a number of public bodies struggle with high non-disclosure rates on grounds of ethnicity. These gaps need to be tackled well in advance of the 2017 deadline if a robust Statement – in line with the EHRC’s Code of Practice on Equal Pay – is to be published.
