Voluntary and non-for-profit organisations are set to receive a
share of £2.5 million to raise awareness of employment quality
regulations, the deputy equality minister announced today,
writes Clare Jerrom.
Meg Munn said the funding would help organisations in their work
to raise awareness of sexual orientation, religion or belief
“It is especially important that people understand the law
as we work towards the creation of the Commission for Equality and
Human Rights and the work it will do in ensuring people are
protected from discrimination,” she said.
The Employment Equality (Sexual orientation and Religion or
Belief) Regulations aim to:-
• Outlaw discrimination on the grounds of sexual
orientation, religion or employment and vocational training
• Provide protection to all workers from unfair
discrimination, harassment and victimisation on these grounds
Organisations are invited to submit proposals by 27 July.
