Equality North East

Using the Equality Act to make fair financial decisions

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has published a new guide to using Great Britain's equality duties to ensure fair financial decisions.
With major reductions in public spending, organisations in Great Britain may have to make tough financial decisions and the equality duties do not prevent public authorities from making difficult decisions such as reorganisations and relocations, redundancies, and service reductions.

What the equality duties do is enable public authorities to demonstrate that they are making financial decisions in a fair, transparent and accountable way, considering the needs and the rights of different members of their community. This is achieved through assessing the impact that changes to policies, procedures and practices could have on different equality groups.

For a copy of the report please go to the EHRC website.....
