The number of people who made formal claims for discrimination in Jersey has more than doubled in a year.
New figures show 98 people made formal claims to the Jersey Employment and Discrimination Tribunal in 2019, up from 43 a year earlier – though only one resulted in a successful case.
Of those, 32% were on grounds of age, 30% for disability, and 17% for sex. The remainder covered race, pregnancy and maternity, and gender reassignment.
The vast majority, 88%, were for claims of discrimination at work.
69 of the cases were settled informally, rejected or withdrawn, 21 are still being investigated, and eight went to a final hearing of which one was successful.
Disability discrimination covered work-related stress, depression, dyslexia, fibromyalgia and chronic pain.
The tribunal also dealt with 120 unfair dismissal claims and 54 constructive dismissal claims.
The total paid out in compensation and damages came to £86,297.
