Discrimination questionnaires - time limits for serving and responding under the repealed obtaining information procedure

Under s.138 of the Equality Act 2010, a person who thinks that he or she may have a claim under the Act in relation to discrimination, harassment, victimisation or equal pay can ask the employer questions, provided the alleged discriminatory act occurred before 6 April 2014. The employer does not have to reply to the complainant's questions. However, the tribunal can draw an inference from an employer's failure to reply within the given period, or if it replies in an evasive or ambiguous way.
