In 2013 the States approved, in principle, the establishment of an Equality and Rights Organisation (ERO) subject to the development and approval of a business plan, and having funding and prioritisation in place.
Unfortunately in March 2020, due to the pressures of resources (funding) and the prioritisation of views, plans for an Independent ERO were scrapped. The revised body is called:
The Employment and Equality Opportunities Service (EEOS)
- The existing Employment Relations Service will be developed into an Employment and Equal Opportunities Service.
- The EEOS will offer free advice and pre-complaint conciliation to try to help people to resolve issues before a formal complaint is registered. Find out more here
