understanding equality and diversity
Understanding Equality and Diversity

Equality

Equality is about making sure people are treated fairly within the legislation. Equality is not about treating everyone in the same way, but it recognises that people have different needs and these can be met in different ways.

Equality focuses on those areas covered by law that have been put in place to prevent people from being treated unfavourably on a range of specific factors, e.g. race, gender, disability, etc.

the legislation
The Legislation

Equal Pay Act 1970, Equal Pay (Amendment) Regulation 1983

makes discrimination on the grounds of sex unlawful in the area of pay (right to the same pay and benefits as a person of the opposite sex)

Sex Discrimination Act 1975 & 1986

protects against discrimination on grounds of sex, marital status, gender reassignment and pregnancy in employment, education and training, the provision of goods, facilities and services and premises

the legislation1
The Legislation

Race Relations Act 1976

prohibits discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin in employment, education , the provision of goods, facilities and services, land and premises

Disability Discrimination Act 1995

Outlaws the discrimination of disabled

people in employment, the provision of

goods, facilities and services and premises

understanding equality and diversity1
Understanding Equality and Diversity

Diversity

Diversity is about respecting and valuing all forms of difference in individuals. A diversity approach aims to recognise, value and manage difference in individuals and to positively strive to meet the needs of different people.

slide21

So while equal opportunity legislation covers factors such as race, gender and disability, diversity goes beyond this to encompass any aspect of an individual that isn't directly related to their ability to do a specific job or undertake a particular task. This might include their social background, personality type and so on.

slide26

Direct Discrimination

Direct discrimination takes place when a person is treated less favourably than others (in the same circumstances) on the grounds of their race, sex, disability etc.

For example, a job advertisement which states that “Only those who have English as their first language may apply”.

slide27

Indirect Discrimination

Indirect discrimination means applying a condition, or requirement, which adversely affects one particular group more than another, and cannot be justified in terms of the requirements for performing a job.

For example, a line manager who only offers overtime to full time members of staff (the group being directly discriminated against will be part timers but where female part timers form the majority of the part time group they would be eligible to claim indirect discrimination on the grounds of gender).

.

slide28

Victimisation

Victimisation consists of taking action against a person for asserting their rights under the law.

For example, a member of staff who has spoken to their line manager about being the subject of racial harassment by another member of staff and who is subsequently ignored by a group of staff within the section.

slide29

Harassment/Bullying

Harassment and bullying take many forms, occurs on a variety of grounds and may be directed at one person or many people. In general terms it can be described as persistent unwanted behaviour which a person finds intimidating, upsetting, embarrassing, humiliating or offensive.

key point

It is important to realise that while equality legislation is becoming increasingly comprehensive it still only defines MINIMUM standards that all organisation must attain.

In order to meet not only legal obligations, but to achieve the highest possible standards of good practice organisations develop, publish, implement and enforce a number of guidelines and policies.

the real benefits to an organisation
The real benefits to an organisation

Talent – Enable an organisation to draw people from the widest possible pool of talent and create an environment in which everyone feels respected and reach their full potential.

Innovation – Different people have different perspectives and remember there is often more than one solution to a problem

Service – In work we deal with a wide range of different people. Well informed employees , who are themselves from diverse backgrounds will enable better response and professional service that meets the needs of the individuals.

marchington wilkinson 2002 p 143 people management development
Marchington & Wilkinson (2002, P.143) People management & Development

“The economic case rests upon the claim that it makes good business sense to increase access – in terms of productivity and quality, customer care and managerial skills – in order to ensure the most effective use of all talents in the workforce”
