What the Law Says

The main legal provisions setting up the Equality Duty can be found in the Equality Act 2010 sections 149-157 and in schedule 19.

In order to help public bodies apply the Duty better, the Equality Act 2010 gave English, Welsh and Scottish Ministers powers to make regulations imposing specific duties on bodies specified in schedule 19. Consequently, there are different regulations for England, Wales and Scotland.
