A raft of reforms have been announced after the Red Tape Challenge looked at how to simplify the Equality Act and remove unnecessary legislation.

Businesses and the wider public will be able to have their say on the reforms in a series of consultations. These will look at proposals to streamline the employment tribunal process and to scrap the Third Party Harassment law, which makes bosses liable if a member of staff is harassed by a customer.

The government will also clarify disability law for employers and remove the Socio-Economic Duty – which would have forced public bodies to consider class-based inequality when developing policy.

And it will review the Public Sector Equality Duty to establish whether this is the best way to ensure public bodies consider the impact of their decisions on different groups.
