Where an employer is found to have breached equal pay law, an employment tribunal can order them to produce an equal pay audit. Our requirement for all larger employers to publish their gender pay gap will help increase transparency of all the factors underlying the endemic differences in pay between men and women.</p> more like this

They reported that between 1 October 2016, when the current EASS contract started, and 31 October 2017 there were 590 contacts from disabled people about harassment or victimisation, out of a total of 11,817 disability-related calls.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Equality Act 2010 prohibits certain forms of conduct – including harassment – in employment and the provision of goods, services and public functions. Harassment is defined as unwanted conduct related to someone’s protected characteristics and which has the purpose or effect of violating their dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for them. However, “bullying” is not a term used in the Act, and incidents of “bullying” are not recorded.</p><p> </p><p>The Equality Advisory and Support Service, a Government-sponsored helpline that offers free advice and support to people who feel that they have been victims of unlawful discrimination, records and makes available statistics on all the customer contacts that it receives.</p><p> </p><p>Between 1 October 2016 - when the current service provider took over running the contract - and 28 February 2018, the Service recorded 1443 customer contacts concerning harassment across all the protected characteristics covered by the Act, 310 (21%) of which were related to race.</p>

We rely on a range of sources to gather insight on bullying, harassment and discrimination against LGBT people in different contexts. These include our regular omnibus survey of pupils and their parents, research from the National Institute for Economic and Social Research, which the Government Equalities Office commissioned in 2016 to review the evidence of inequalities faced by LGBT people, and evidence from LGBT organisations.</p><p> </p><p>In July this year we launched a national online survey to gain the views of LGBT people living in the UK on what they think of public services. There are questions about the workplace as well as health, education, safety, and more general questions about being an LGBT person in the UK. The survey received an unprecedented response, making it one of the largest LGBT surveys in the world. We will analyse those results closely and set out further steps to promote LGBT equality next year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is clear that unwanted conduct in the workplace that violates a person’s dignity or creates a hostile or degrading atmosphere is unacceptable. Legal protection from such harassment in the workplace exists through the Equality Act 2010, with more serious, criminal offences covered in the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 and the Sexual Offences Act 2003. We believe this legislation provides adequate protection for both men and women in the working environment; however, we will continue to keep the operation of the legislation under review, to ensure that it works as intended.</p><p>We also recognise that employers may try to get employees to sign away their rights in non-disclosure agreements. In fact the law makes any such agreement unenforceable, should an employee subsequently take action under the Equality Act or the criminal law.</p> more like this
