Equality Reports

main content

The Equality Act 2010 introduced the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED), which came into force in Scotland on 27 May 2012.

The PSED requires universities and public bodies to have due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

The protected characteristics covered by the Public Sector Equality Duty are:  

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment     
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief   
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation

The Public Sector Equality Duty covers all the protected characteristics apart from marriage and civil partnership, for which public bodies will only have to demonstrate due regard to the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination in employment.
