The Equality Act 2010
The Equality Act 2010, the main UK discrimination legislation, is not explicit about its territorial scope. This means that dependant on the specific circumstances this legislation may apply to staff based overseas. The Universities Equality Statement outlines a commitment by the University to promote equality in all its activities and aims to provide a work, learning, research and teaching environment free from discrimination and unfair treatment. These principles should apply regardless of geographical location.
