SCRA Equalities Outcomes

In 2012 SCRA established a joint Equalities Network with UNISON.  This network was tasked with developing the outcomes which SCRA has published in pursuance of fulfilling its specific equalities duties.

Following feedback from the EHRC Equality Outcomes Improvement Project in July 2014 on these initial equality outcomes, SCRA (The Equalities Network) in partnership with UNISON and Stonewall created a new set of Equality Outcomes in August 2014.

View SCRA’s Revised Equality Outcomes.  The revised document takes account of feedback received from the Equality Outcomes Improvement Project in both July and October 2014. 

Equal Pay Statement

SCRA – Equal Pay Statement

SCRA is committed to the principle of Equal Pay for all employees.  We aim to ensure that procedures are in place to determine pay and conditions of employment which do not discriminate unlawfully and are free from gender and other bias.

We understand the benefits of operating a fair pay system which is transparent and is based on objective criteria.  We are committed to taking action to ensure that equal pay is in place for like work, work rated as equivalent and work of equal value.  We believe that in eliminating bias from pay systems we are promoting positive relations amongst staff, partners and the wider community.

We also believe that practices such as flexible working and access to training and job opportunities contribute to the creation of a culture which values its staff and eliminates unlawful discrimination.

Equality Impact Assessments

SCRA is required to carry out Equality Impact Assessments (EIA) on every service it provides as it has a duty to assure the public and the Scottish Government that it has considered how its services reflect the needs of the communities it serves. We will prioritise EIA’s where we are proposing changes to policies, practice or services and will also undertake some limited retrospective assessments. 

SCRA has developed a process to undertake Equality Impact Assessments and has also produced a guidance document.

There are two EIA forms. The first is a preliminary assessment form, which when completed determines whether a full Equality Impact Assessment has to be carried out.

Completed SCRA EIA's can be viewed below:

Central Locality 2014
Children and Families Survey 2012
Stress Management Policy 2013
Pay Offer 2012/13
Hearings Management Practice Guidance 2013
Voluntary Redundancy/Voluntary Early Retirement 2012/13

SCRA Reporting

SCRA's 2013 Mainstreaming Report - SCRA's Single Equality Scheme 2013/14 - outlines progress SCRA is making in integrating equality into our functions and practices.

SCRA will publish by 30th April 2015 a report outlining how we have mainstreamed the equality duty into SCRA and our progress against revised equality outcomes.
