Creating a fairer Britain
The Equality Act came into force on 1 October 2010. Some of the information on this page may be out of date.
It is unlawful for an employer to treat you less favourably than others on racial grounds or because of your gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, trans background or religion or belief, when advertising jobs or during the recruitment process.
If you think you have suffered discrimination, you may be able to take a case of unlawful discrimination against your employer or recruitment agency. The Commission may be able to act on your behalf.
