Equality North East

Equality Bill published

The long-awaited Equality Bill has been published today, setting new laws to help narrow the gap between gender pay and strengthen anti-discrimination legislation.

The Bill, expected to come into force by autumn 2010, is set to replace nine laws and more than 100 other measures with one single Act to make it easier for employers and staff to understand their legal rights and obligations.

Harriet Harman, minister for women and equality, said: "Today we publish our tough new Equality Bill, promised in our manifesto, building on our actions over the past 10 years. It will make Britain a more equal place, and help us build a stronger economy and fairer society for the future."
