The United Kingdom Council for Access and Equality (UKCAE) Pathway : a national equality standard built by business for business. An online tool that assesses practice and measures performance against an equality framework for risk of discrimination.

Are you at risk of discrimination?

Discrimination at work is a burden

  • Ongoing, complex third-party liability case against a major retail chain
  • 218,000 tribunal cases in the UK system already in 2012
  • 79% increase in age discrimination cases between 2008-2011

Discrimination at work is expensive

  • £200,000 awarded for bullying at work
  • £70,00 awarded for sex discrimination
  • £58,000 awarded for disability discrimination
  • Average awarded for age discrimination in excess of £30,000

Discrimination at work hurts everyone

  • The individuals involved
  • Your balance sheet
  • Your reputation
  • Society in general

Can you really be sure there is no discrimination in your organisation?
How fairly is everyone really treated in your organisation?
Does everyone really have equal opportunities and rights?

Equality is not simply a problem to be fixed: it could be a method for achieving and sustaining new levels of opportunity and advantage. UKCAE can help you achieve this by ensuring you incorporate good practice at every level within your organisation.
