Acas, EEDA and Business Link are working in partnership to ensure that organisations are aware of the implications of the Equality Act 2010 on their business. Most of the provisions in the Act take effect from 1st October 2010. The Act marks a step change in equality legislation as it harmonises and strengthens current discrimination law.

Jane Dines, Equality and Diversity Advisor, Acas East of England says ‘Fairness in the workplace is good for business and motivates staff as well as improving effectiveness and productivity. Our business briefings will help organisations understand the changes, how they impact and what is required to implement them’.

The two hour morning briefings are free and cover the main provisions of the Act. They are open to owners/managers from the private and third sector.

As places are limited early booking is recommended.

Places can be booked by contacting the Acas Customer Services Team for a booking form by emailing or by telephoning 08457 383736
