The Equality Act in practice

Reaction to the new legislation

Summary:

Paul Suff gauges how employers and disability groups are viewing the Equality Act 2010.

 ‘LUNATIC legislation’ was how entrepreneur and Dragon’s Den star Duncan Bannatyne described the Equality Act 2010 in the Daily Mail[1], while an article in the Daily Telegraph[2] claimed ‘staff who are dyslexic, have taken a large number of sick days or who look after disabled and elderly relatives will find it easier to win unfair dismissal cases under the new law.’

Paul Suff is contributing editor of Occupational Health [at Work].
