The new public sector equality duty is an important part of the Equality Act 2010. It appears in s.149 of the Act and came into force on 5 April 2011. It replaces the former race, disability and gender equality duties with a single duty that applies to eight protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
This toolkit is aimed at trade union negotiators to help them understand the new public sector equality duty and how they can use it. It provides guidance on the new public sector equality duty, including what 'due regard' means in practice.
