The UK Government's Equality Act 2010 replaced the existing equality legislation and consolidates anti-discrimination laws into a single Act. It simplifies the law and removes inconsistencies making it easier for people to understand and comply with. The Equality Act 2010 is law and applies to everyone, both in the public and private sector. It restated that people are protected from discrimination based on the following protected characteristics:
