The Equality and Human Rights Commission has published guidance [1] that explains what public authorities in England and non-devolved bodies in Scotland and Wales [2] have to do to comply with the public sector equality duty.

From 6 April 2011, when this part of the Equality Act 2010 comes into force, public authorities will need to consider what they are doing to tackle discrimination, harassment or victimisation.

The new duty includes age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation [3].

Public authorities are also expected to advance equality of opportunity as well as fostering good relations between different groups.

The Government has today published regulations to help public authorities in England and non-devolved bodies in Scotland and Wales make sure they meet these responsibilities [4].

The Commission’s guidance on the public sector equality duty is the latest in its series of publications that explain the Equality Act 2010. This can be found on its website at www.equalityhumanrights.com/ea2010.

Sheila Kumar, Group Director Regulation, at the Equality and Human Rights Commission said:

“Our role as a regulator is to help public authorities understand what they need to do and help them achieve the desired outcomes. Meeting these requirements will help public authorities make sure their services are appropriate for their communities. Better informed decision-making and policy development should help public services become more efficient cost-effective and meet the needs of service users. Therefore, as well as being a legal obligation, it makes good business sense.”
