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 Some of the information on this page may be out of date.
You can find out more about equal pay from the former Equal Opportunities Commission’s Code of practice on equal pay.
Age Positive, part of DWP, has kindly given us permission to present some of their publications on our website, since the Commission has not yet produced its own publications about discrimination on the grounds of age. These guides to the 21st Century workforce cover all areas of employment – from recruitment and retention, to flexible working and retirement – helping everyone involved in employment get the best out of people of all ages. Read the Age Positive publications.
The Acas website has answers to many of the most common questions on equal pay.
