I spoke too soon. Implementation is coming it has been announced!
The Equality Act 2010 was scheduled to come into force in October 2010. It needs enabling regulations and there are increasing rumours that those are delayed, perhaps indefinitely. Whatever one feels about the act, uncertainty is unhelpful. Personally I welcome the consolidation that makes it easier to follow and removes the irritating differences between equality heads. I dislike some of the detail.
Hopefully we will get a clear announcement before Parliament rises for the summer.
