There is no obligation to carry out monitoring but it can help to highlight inequality in the workplace, identify the causes and help to remove unfairness and disadvantage.
Equal opportunities forms should be separated from individual applications prior to the shortlisting process and should be anonymised. Applicants should be informed that the form does not constitute part of any assessment for the job applied for and that completing the form is optional.
For a copy of the form, please see:
