The UK Equality Act: What Employers Need to Know

September 22, 2010

Please join Morgan Lewis for this one-hour webcast focusing on the UK Equality Act and how it will affect companies with operations and employees in the UK.

The UK Equality Act taking effect this October harmonizes previously disparate discrimination legislation and classifies "protected characteristics" such as age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation. There will be immediate ramifications for employers that will require careful review of existing policies, procedures, and training programs.

The presenters will highlight the key provisions of the Act for UK employers as well as important next steps as the legislation takes effect.
