Why we consult

We undertake equality analysis (EA) to consider the likely effects of our policies and practices on different groups protected from discrimination by the Equality Act in order to create a more inclusive university.

We would like to consult and engage with students, staff, visitors and members of the public on issues, policies and strategies which are important to all of us at the University.

Current consultations

Review of the Furlough Policy

This EA looks at Furloughing of staff as part of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme in response to the Covid-19 pandemic in line with the Furlough Policy.

The Furlough Policy will be updated as appropriate to respond to government advice and policy throughout the lifetime of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. The Policy below is current as of late June 2020, and similarly this Equality Analysis reflects June 2020.
