This book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the Equality Act 2010 and its background. The Act is the outcome of more than a decade of research and public debate, starting with the publication of Equality: a new framework.
Report of the Independent Review of the Enforcement of UK Anti-Discrimination Legislation by Bob Hepple, Mary Coussey and Tufyal Choudhury (Hart Publishing, 2000), and over a year of intense parliamentary scrutiny.
The aim of this book is to examine the aims and structure of the new legal framework and to assess the Act against four goals of reform set by the earlier review: harmonising and extending the law on status equality; widening the areas of unlawful conduct; changing organisational policy and behaviour including positive duties to advance equality, and improving enforcement of the law.
