Equality Act 2010 – Quick Start Guide for Public Sector
The Equality Act 2010 replaces the existing anti- discrimination laws with a single Act. It simplifies the law, removing inconsistencies and making it easier for people to understand and comply with it. It also strengthens the law in important ways to help tackle discrimination and inequality.
This summary guide is intended to help public sector organisations understand what the aspects of the Act coming into force in October 2010 mean for them.
