What is the Equality Act 2010?

The Equality Act 2010 was created by the Government to replace the previous anti-discrimination laws that had been put in place. This single Act makes it easier for the public to understand the law surrounding equality and to also strengthen protection for some situations. 

The Act looks at different types of discrimination, who is protected under the Act and also what action can be taken is a person feels that they are being discriminated. 

Check out our page about how you can promote diversity to find out more about the Act. 

Or you can visit the Government's website which goes into more detail about the Act.
