Abstract

The Equality Act 2010 was designed to simplify as well as unify British discrimination law. While there has been some significant unification, there are a
number of areas where it has fallen short with regard to simplification, indeed it has introduced or cemented complexity and confusion. This article examines three such areas concerning two of the protected characteristics (pregnancy/maternity and gender reassignment) and one of the claims (victimisation) within the Equality Act 2010.
