In April this year, the Equality Act 2010 was passed in Great Britain. The provisions of the Act, apart from a few minor exceptions, only apply to Great Britain and will not change equality law in Northern Ireland. Further details on the Equality Act 2010 and the resulting gaps between GB and NI Equality Law can be accessed here.

In recognition of the need to streamline and modernise Northern Ireland equality law and to keep pace with developments in GB, the Equality Commission has put forward a number of proposals for urgent legislative reform in this area. Further information on these proposals is available here.
