Equality and diversity

Hambleton District Council is totally opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination, and we pro-actively observe the Equality Act and Public Sector Equality and Diversity legislation.

Policies and procedures

Our Equality Statement describes our commitment to encouraging diversity amongst our workforce and in the services we deliver, and our Equalities Report provides information on our workforce and employment practices. We also provide an Equality Impact Assessment guide explaining the correct procedures should an assessment be appropriate:

Our Equality and Diversity policy ensures these commitments and practices are embedded in all our activities:

Gender pay gap

All public sector employers are required to publish their gender pay gap information as an analysis of gender distribution across the workforce. The gender pay gap is the difference between the average earnings of men and women, expressed relative to men’s earnings.

The gender pay gap is not to be confused with equal pay, which is the right for men and women to be paid the same rate when doing the same or equivalent work.

The latest gender pay gap report is here:
