PERREN, K. ... et al., 2012. Evaluation of the implementation of the Equality Act 2010: report 1 - organisational approaches to equality. London: Government Equalities Office, 35pp.
This report presents findings of a telephone survey of organisations’ understanding of equality
legislation which was conducted between November 2011 and January 2012. It is the first in a series of
three topic reports that forms a key early stage of the Government Equalities Office (GEO) evaluation
of the Equality Act 2010, which was primarily implemented in October of that year. This report
investigates workplace equality structures and variations in organisations’ ethos regarding equality.
The second report focuses on awareness of the Act and its impact on practice. The third outlines the
structures that organisations had in place for addressing employee claims of discriminatory or unequal
treatment. It also explores the basis for recent disputes as well as outcomes.
This is a report produced by the Centre for Research in Social Policy and the International Centre for Public and Social Policy on behalf of Government Equalities Office.
