"Ian Le Marquand Failing Vulnerable Workers" as well as failing everyone else

States ‘failing workers’

JACS Director David Witherington

JERSEY’S most vulnerable workers are being let down by a States which has failed to introduce basic employment rights, according to a critical new report.
In its annual report, the Jersey Advisory and Conciliation Service said that it was unacceptable that the Island still had no maternity and paternity provisions or Discrimination Law.
New legislation to introduce provisions for new mothers and fathers is still waiting law drafting and is likely to be years away from implementation.
And the Discrimination Law, which would significantly improve rights for workers, has been shelved because of States cutbacks.
