Dear State Services Commission,
I am interested in employment equity and fairness
Please quantify your gender paygap (if possible not just binary male-female but incorporating other gender identifications too). Please also give numbers of your employees are of which genders at each tier of your hierarchy.
Please also provide the same information regarding the other following demographics (to the extent that it is held, it is understood that you may not have all of this data):
Employment status immediately prior to be employed by yourselves
Physical appearance/body type characteristics
Please explain what you are doing to actively address any disparities in any of these areas.
Please explain how you go about preventing and combating conscious discrimination and prejudice in these areas.
Please explain how you go about preventing and combating unconscious discrimination and prejudice in these areas.
Please be aware that providing policy documents that state these discriminations and prejudices are not acceptable does not constitute an answer to these queries. Policy documents are not action. What actual actions are you taking.
Please explain how you go about preventing and combating wrongful interpersonal behaviour such as workplace bullying and harassment even if it is not specific to any of these demographics.
Please provide for the last seven years how many complaints of conscious or unconscious discrimination, bullying, harassment, sexual harassment have been made. Also please provide the number of times people raised these incidents but did not lodge a formal complaint.
Please explain how many of these cases were investigated and whether they were investigated by your own people or external parties. Please explain how you decide if an internal or external person is suitably qualified and skilled and has the integrity needed for the investigation.
Please explain what actions have been taken against the perpetrators whose actions gave rise to the complaints.
