EHRC publishes 2013/14 corporate plan
11 June 2013
The Equality and Human Rights Commission published its latest corporate plan last week.
On the employment front the Commission’s priorities include:
- Diversity at work – the Commission will follow up on earlier research into how female non-executive directors are appointed to corporate boards by widening its focus to look at the talent pool more generally and way in which women can be encouraged to advance their careers; and
- In response to considerable evidence of discrimination against women who are pregnant, on maternity leave or on their return to work to the EHRC will assess existing research and guidance for employers and employees and consider how to improve employer understanding of their rights and obligations and employee understanding of their employment rights and obligations.
