Equality at work
03 February 2017
Discrimination in the workplace is governed by the Equality Act 2010. This brings together into one place all of the equality laws that had developed over a number of years, including those based on EU law. It also covers discrimination in other areas such as the provision of goods, facilities and services.
This Inbrief gives an overview of the law in an employment context. For more detail on particular types of discrimination, please see our separate Inbriefs on specific protected characteristics.
