Implementation of various equality acts
IPSA holds some of the information that you request.
We comply with legislation that lays down requirements on employers and have policies in place on how these apply to IPSA. IPSA’s equality and diversity policy document (attached at Annex A) provides more detail on the policies we have in place in relation to the relevant legislation, including the Equality Act 2010.
In accordance with our publication policy and within our approach to handling requests under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, any processing of personal data is handled in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
We do not have policies that specifically relate to either the Mental Capacity Act 2005 or to the Mental Health Act 1983 as this legislation, as we understand, does not confer requirements on IPSA as an employer.
IPSA has not been requested to provide evidence to the House of Lords Select Committee on the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
