Discrimination and English law (the Equality Act 2010)
Equality of treatment for all is a core value of the English legislature with various legislation enacted towards the end of the 20th century banning most types of discrimination. Equal pay between men and women became a legal right in 1970 followed by the Sex Discrimination Act in 1975, the Race Relations Act in 1976, and then the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.
