Brexit and the Equality Act?

Brexit and human rights

There are no plans to remove the Equality Act, following Brexit.

The Equality Act is UK law, which covers discrimination on grounds of Disability, Age, Race, Sex, Sexual Orientation, Religion, Pregnancy, Marriage or Civil Partnership. 

It offers protection from discrimination in many situations such as education, employment, exercise of public functions, goods, services, facilities and transport.

For an overview of the Equality Act, see Gov UK's Equality Act Guidance and the Equality and Human Rights Commission website
