Equality and workforce

The Equality Act 2010 requires Salford City Council as an employer to obtain, evaluate, record and publish up to date equality information relating to our workforce.

Under the legislation this information covers workers who identify themselves as belonging to one or more of the following protected characteristics:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Religion and belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender reassignment
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Marriage and civil partnerships

What workforce data and information will be published?

We provide staff information disaggregated by protected group on:

  • Distribution of the protected groups across the workforce
  • The number of part-time/full-time staff and contract workers
  • Applications, recruitment and promotion
  • Pay gap information
  • Grievance and disciplinary cases
  • Return-to-work rates after maternity leave
  • People leaving the organisation, including redundancy

As an employer, we will use this information to work towards encouraging participation and eliminating discrimination.

The findings and analysis of the data has resulted in an action plan for 2017 to 2019. These actions will inform policies and practices and effect change. We will engage and consult with employees and the wider community as we work towards achieving actual outcomes.

Workforce information will be continued to be published, monitored and reviewed on a regular basis.
