The Committee for Employment and Social Security ('the Committee') has published draft proposals for new multi-ground discrimination legislation in Guernsey.

You can read a summary of the draft proposals, or the full technical draft proposals at

The Committee has selected some key points to include in this questionnaire. This questionnaire has three parts:
  • Part A – who is protected from discrimination and when
  • Part B – the complaints process and implementation
  • Part C – the exceptions
This is Part C. It will take about half an hour to complete.

We recommend that you read the exceptions list available at: before you complete this Part. The exceptions list is organised by where the exceptions apply and who they apply to. If you have limited time, the Committee suggest you focus on the exceptions which are most relevant to you.

It includes the following sections:
  • Section 8: When should it be ok to treat people differently? Do we have the right exceptions to the rule of non-discrimination?
  • Part C – also invites comments on any other part of the proposals.
The Committee will be reviewing all the responses carefully to understand the reasoning behind your answers. This consultation will help the Committee to understand a full range of views and consider points which may not have been considered yet – it is about what people think, and why. It is not intended to be a representative survey, or opinion poll.
