The Equality Act 2010 legally protects people from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society. The Act identifies nine ‘protected characteristics’ or groups that are covered by the legislation:
- Gender Reassignment
- Marriage and Civil Partnership
- Pregnancy and Maternity
- Race and Ethnicity
- Religion and Belief
- Sexual Orientation
The Population Analysis of Protected Characteristics provides an overview of the population of Gloucestershire by nine protected characteristics as set out in the Equality Act 2010.
We are in the process of updating the accompanying interactive reports and these will be available shortly.
