Hello is anyone please able to tell the the effects of the equality act upon health and social care setting?? Many thanks
•Cover the discrimination act, race relations act and disability discrimination act.
•Came into force 1st October 2010
•Protects against overt and covert discrimination, harassment, victimisation while using services, employment,education,
•Provides protection from stereotypes e.g. can’t not employ you because you are a Muslim and they are currently associated with being terrorists
•Allows same sex marriage
•Protects :
age
disability
gender reassignment
marriage or civil partnership (in employment only)
pregnancy and maternity
race religion or belief
sexual orientation.




Equality act (2010): This protects you in the workplace and the wider society. It replaced many different laws by outlining different ways in which it is unlawful to treat a person. It means that staff must treat everyone on a equal level no matter what and any overt or covert discrimination would be severely dealt with.

To apply this to a care home setting this would mean that overt or covert discrimination would not be accepted towards residents or staff. This legislation has influenced many care home policies including the fact that you have to have wheelchair access into and out of the care home. It also means that racial discrimination can not take place against any member of staff or residents e.g. have to have a menu in a different language so that a resident can make a choice as to what they want to eat.

Hope it helps

Right. Yes I do, though we are not doing unit 13.

Overt means outward so a slap

Covert means discreet so not giving meds on time
