Equality Act 2010


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.

The documents below are intended to help public sector organisations understand what the aspects of the Act, which came into force in October 2010, mean for them.
