Equality North East

New streamlined procedure for obtaining information about potential discrimination and equality of term cases

One of the ways in which the Equality Act 2010 streamlines discrimination law is by replacing a series of nine individual questionnaires about possible discrimination (for sex, disability, sexual orientation etc), with a single set of paperwork (guidance and forms) for all types of discrimination. There will also be new guidance and forms for equality of terms issues (formally known as the equal pay provisions).

We are consulting on the draft paperwork for obtaining information about potential discrimination and equality of term cases. The new paperwork will come into use when the Equality Act 2010 comes into force later this year.

Discrimination law currently provides a process for a person who thinks that he or she may have been unlawfully discriminated against, harassed or victimised to obtain information from the person they think has acted unlawfully against them. The process allows an employee or a consumer of a service or goods for example to request information before deciding whether to present a claim to an employment tribunal or court.
