The Equality and Human Rights Commission has just published new guidance to help public authorities in England and non-devolved bodies in Scotland and Wales prepare for the new equality duty that comes into force on 6 April 2011. The new duty includes age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation. The Commission's guidance on the Public Sector Equality Duty is the latest in its series of publications that explain the Equality Act 2010.
