Equality Act employment provisions in force from October












Equality Act employment
provisions in force from October




The Government
Equalities Office (GEO) has ended recent speculation about the implementation
of the Equality Act 2010, by announcing that the employment provisions will
come into force in October 2010. A commencement order will be published this
month confirming the full details. No indication has been given as to when the
other measures in the Act will be introduced.

The Government
Equalities Office have confirmed that the core employment provisions in the
Equality Act 2010 will come into force on 1 October 2010.The first commencement
order setting out which provisions will come into force at that time will be
published in Parliament during week commencing 12 July 2010. The GEO has not,
however, confirmed when the other provisions will come into force such as the
extended public sector equality duty, gender pay reporting and the new public
sector duty regarding socio-economic inequalities.

The GEO, in
conjunction with the British Chamber of Commerce, the Equality and Diversity
Forum and Citizens Advice, have published summary guides to support
implementation of the Act. These publications will be followed by a series of
‘Quick Start’ guides to key changes in the law. This guidance is designed to
set out clearly what the new legislation means for business, the public sector
and the voluntary sector, to help prepare for, and minimise the effects of,
transition.
