The Equality Act 2010
The Equality Act 2010 brings together all the legal requirements on equality that organisations in the private, public and voluntary sectors need to meet.
The Act replaces all the existing equality law, including:
- The Equal Pay Act 1970
- The Sex Discrimination Act 1975
- The Race Relations Act 1976
- The Disability Discrimination Act 1995
The purpose of the Act is to ensure that everyone has the right to be treated fairly at work and when using both public services (such as education, housing, libraries, health and social services, etc.) and private services including shops, transport and leisure facilities.
The Act protects people from discrimination on the basis of certain characteristics, known as ‘protected characteristics’. These are:
- Gender Reassignment
- Marriage or Civil Partnership
- Pregnancy and Maternity
- Religion or Belief
- Sexual Orientation
- Sex (Gender)
