Equality Act

Together we are Forbes

Wednesday 16 June 2010, Stanley House Hotel, Preston New Road, Mellor, Blackburn, BB2 7NP

The Equality Act 2010 has now passed through Parliament. It contains a series of measures for tackling inequalities which will have a significant impact upon employers in the public and private sectors. Some of the specific measures include:

  • Making the law easier to understand and implement by simplifying over 100 pieces of equality legislation into a single Act for individuals, public authorities and private organisations
  • Giving people the right not to be treated less favourably by public authorities because of their age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, or transgender status; as well as their disability, gender, or race that were already covered by existing legislation
  • Extending anti-age discrimination rules to include goods, facilities and services, for example preventing people being unfairly refused insurance or medical treatments based on what age they are

We have prepared a seminar that looks at the relationship between the content of the Equality Act 2010 and the existing legislation, what changes have been made and, more importantly, what those changes mean in practical terms.

Time

Registration will be at 10am and the seminar will conclude with lunch at 12:45pm.
