Creating a fairer Britain
A new Equality Act started to come into force on 1 October 2010. We have created a series of guidance documents to help explain the Act and provide practical examples on how the law has changed. We currently have guidance for employers, workers, service providers, service users and education providers. Guidance for students will be available soon.
Update: Web based versions of the guidance have now been launched. Use the navigation links on the left or the right to find the guidance online.
