CIPD Channel Islands Employment Law Update

The Ghosts of Past, Present and Future

As 2016 is fast drawing to a close we thought now would be an ideal time to reflect on what has been a busy past couple of years in the Channel Islands in relation to equal opportunities and discrimination law with our policy advisor Richard Sheldon.

In a short space of time, the landscape around equalities legislation has radically changed and the drive to bring us closer to the position in the UK over the next few years seems inevitable.

Whilst the laws may differ between Guernsey and Jersey, the approach of each island inevitably influences the other on matters of policy, especially with so many businesses now operating on a pan-island basis, so the session will cover developments across both including:

  • A look at the past discrimination cases across both islands including the first discrimination decision in Jersey;
  • A look at the present policy thinking following introduction of new maternity rights in Guernsey and age discrimination in Jersey this year; and
  • A look to the future of discrimination laws across both islands with disability discrimination in both islands and the how employers will tackle retirement in Jersey come 2018.
