Codes of practice on equality law repealed

Implementation date: 6 April 2011

The Former Equality Commissions’ Codes of Practice (Employment, Equal Pay, and Rights of Access for Disabled Persons) (Revocation) Order 2011 (SI 2011/776) revokes the five codes of practice that give guidance on discrimination legislation in force prior to the implementation of the Equality Act 2010. The codes are superseded by codes of practice issued by the Equality and Human Rights Commission that give guidance on the Equality Act 2010. The Order contains transitional provisions. The Order can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
