What does the law say about race equality at work?

Last updated: 17 Nov 2023

The Equality Act outlaws discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of race, ethnicity and nationality.

We press employers to adopt the responsibilities under the Equality Act that include a public-sector duty to promote good race relations and eliminate racial discrimination. (Although this applies only to the public sector, the duties on employers are good business practice and should also therefore apply in the private and voluntary sectors.)
