In 2010 the different strands of discrimination law were harmonised into the Equality Act 2010. In general, it is unlawful to discriminate against either employees or workers because of their age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race (including colour, nationality, and ethnic or national origins), religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. Equal pay is also now covered under the Equality Act 2010.
Discrimination includes direct and indirect discrimination, harassment, victimisation and, in relation to disability discrimination, discrimination arising from disability, and failure to make reasonable adjustments. Together these elements are collectively known as ‘prohibited conduct’.
