Many Acts were put into practise to ensure there was no unfair, policies or treatment within the work place. These acts meant that employers could not discriminate while hiring or while the candidate was under employment, this was a huge step in social equality and diversity and was the first major step toward the society we live in today.

Race Relations 1965

The Race Relations Act was the first legislation in the United Kingdom to address racial discrimination. The Act outlawed discrimination on the "grounds of colour, race, or ethnic or national origins" in public places. It also prompted the creation of The Race Relations Board (in 1966), to consider complaints under the Act.

The Equality Act 2010

The Act came into force on 1 October 2010. The Equality Act brings together over 116 separate pieces of legislation into one single Act. Combined, they make up a new Act that provides a legal framework to protect the rights of individuals and advance equality of opportunity for all.

The Act simplifies, strengthens and harmonises the current legislation to provide Britain with a new discrimination law which protects individuals from unfair treatment and promotes a fair and more equal society.
