THE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES ACT
Transcript of THE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES ACT
Equal opportunities are the rights that people get without looking at their gender, age, disability and gender reassignment (gender change through surgery or hormones), marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief.
By Palak Mittal &
•Equal Opportunities apply to both men and women at work
•Employers can only discriminate a person by their ability, potential and experience.
•Individuals from different backgrounds bring different attitudes and beliefs to the their workplace benefiting the people surrounding them.
At school ...
The Equality Act 2010 says education providers like schools, colleges and universities mustn’t discriminate against their pupils and students.
The Equality Act applies to all schools, it doesn’t matter if the school is publicly funded or if it’s a private school.
schools maintained by a local authority
other state funded schools
special schools not maintained by a local authority
independent or private schools
pupil referral units.
Positive things that happened due to the Equal Rights Act was that people started to understand how it felt to be discriminated and resolved it by employing people who had the best qualifications not because of their age, gender etc
Negative Things that still go on today because people still have stereotype of different attitudes and genders. For example building firms still don’t make many women as they say the tools are too hard for them too handle.
