Equality and Human Rights Commission: Manpower

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Minister for Women and Equality how many permanent staff within the Equality and Human Rights Commission are (a) staff without posts, (b) part of a people action team, (c) pre-surplus, (d) priority movers and (e) otherwise do not have a formal permanent position. (250499)

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) was established in October 2007. Jobs within the EHRC were available to staff from the commissions the EHRC replaced (the Equal Opportunities Commission, the Disability Rights Commission and the Commission for Racial Equality). Six permanent staff from a complement of 525 currently employed within the EHRC are yet to be matched to roles following their transfer from one of the former Commissions. These six are being helped to find suitable job matches within the EHRC. Five of the six are actively engaged on priority EHRC projects, and the other is currently on maternity leave. EHRC do not have any individuals who are part of a ‘people action team’, are ‘pre-surplus’, or are ‘priority movers’.
