As part of the development of new discrimination legislation, the Committee for Employment & Social Security have gathered people's views regarding the Sex Discrimination (Employment) (Guernsey) Ordinance, 2005 (as amended), Guernsey's only existing piece of discrimination legislation.
The Sex Discrimination Ordinance covers discrimination in the field of employment on the grounds of sex, gender reassignment and being married. It is likely that the Committee will suggest that the Sex Discrimination Ordinance is repealed and relevant provisions incorporated into new multi-ground discrimination legislation (see further information here www.gov.gg/discrimination).
The consultation closed on 26th October 2018 and a high-level summary of findings will be published in December 2018.

The Committee intends to carry out a wider public consultation regarding its draft proposals for new multi-ground discrimination legislation in 2019 before taking a Policy Letter to the States for consideration.
