The Equality Act 2010 was an extremely significant reform of the UK discrimination law, consolidating the existing mass of statutory provisions into one statute. The Act brought new rights against discrimination and imposed new duties on employers, service providers, and public authorities. It defined nine protected characteristics: age, disability, combined grounds, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation. This fully revised edition covers all recent developments in the law relating to the Equality Act 2010 and considers the impact of exiting the EU, the transitional period, and the implications for the interaction of the Equality Act and EU law post-Brexit. This title includes new cases and judgements in several key sectors, such as employment rights, education, premises, public sector, enforcement, and positive action. Combining the full text of the Act, as amended, with narrative from an expert team, the book is an invaluable resource for all who encounter the evolving legislation. The Blackstone's Guide Series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislative changes and amendments. Published soon after enactment, they provide expert commentary by leading names on the extent, scope, and effects of the legislation, and include a full copy of the Act itself. They offer a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes.
