G4S to run equality helpline

The government has ignored a recommendation from the House of Lords to take the Equality Advisory and Support Service back in house, that is, to return it to the Equality and Human Rights Commission, and has awarded the contract to run the service to security services company G4S.

The Service is one of the few ports of call open to individuals who think they may be experiencing pay discrimination, whether unequal pay on grounds of sex, or pay discrimination because of their age or ethnicity, or disability status.

EqualPayPortal recommends that in the first instance individuals should seek advice, not from the Equality Advisory and Support Service, but from Acas.

The Acas helpline can be contacted on 0300 123 1100 from Monday-Friday, 8am-8pm and Saturday, 9am-1pm for free support and advice on matters to do with equal pay.
