Details

The Equality Duty is a duty on public bodies and others that carry out public functions. It ensures that public bodies consider the needs of all individuals in their day-to-day work – in shaping policy, in delivering services, and in relation to their own employees. The Equality Duty is supported by 2 specific duties which require public bodies such as PHE to:

  • publish information to show their compliance with the Equality Duty
  • set and publish equality objectives, at least every 4 years

The 2 publications set out how PHE has responded in January 2014 to meeting these 2 specific duties.
