Employment Law - The Equality Act 2010

From 1 October 2010 a new wide ranging piece of employment law legislation came into force. The Equality Act 2010 replaces all previous equality legislation, including the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006. The Equality Act 2010 covers age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity.  These are now called ‘protected characteristics’.

The Equality Act 2010 combines all the important anti-discrimination laws which have been introduced piecemeal over the last 40 years.
