As you may already be aware The Equality Act 2010 came into force on 1st October 2010 making it unlawful to discriminate against, harass or victimise another person for reasons including age, disability, marriage and civil partnership, maternity, race, religion, sex, and sexual orientation. The Act also imposes many new duties on Employers that can have serious consequences for the business if they are breached.
DC Kaye Solicitors are sensitive to the fact that Businesses are concerned about the additional costs that the 2010 Act may cause a business to incur at a time when many businesses are noticing the effects of the difficult economic climate, however Equality law will affect almost every business in the UK on some level and we are able to provide effective and efficient advice to Employers on how to comply with the law in all areas of employment matters from recruitment to dealing with grievances and disciplinary procedures.
