Human rights and Equal opportunities

Human Rights

The Chief Secretary of the Isle of Man Government has issued a policy on the Manx Human Rights Act 2001.

The Act incorporates the fundamental rights and freedoms in the European Convention on Human Rights into Manx domestic law. The Act makes it unlawful for a public authority to behave in a way which contravenes those rights.

Equal Opportunities Statement

We aim for our policies, actions and recruitment strategy to support our belief that nobody should face discrimination on the grounds of their gender, race, religion, disability, age, marital status or sexual orientation, or are disadvantaged in any way.

The Isle of Man Government welcomes applications from candidates regardless of gender, ethnic origin, disability, religious belief, sexual orientation, or any other irrelevant factor. The government is bound by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 2001.

The Isle of Man Government complies with the provisions of the Control of Employment Act (Control of Employment Act 2014 and the Control of Employment Regulations 2015 made under this Act). Any potential employee who is not registered as an Isle of Man worker normally requires a work permit before being eligible for employment in the Isle of Man.
