Discrimination and Equality

The Equality Act 2010, the main provisions of which came into force on 1 October 2010, consolidated and repealed all the previous anti-discrimination laws and sought to express the law on equality and discrimination in simpler terms.

This topic examines the principles and scope of equality law, the grounds on which discrimination is unlawful, the various forms that discrimination can take, and how to recognise and prevent discrimination in a range of circumstances.
