The Equality Act 2010 Following my report it seems to me that there are some things that could have be done for example there is a law called The Equality Act 2010. This law is the replace of the other acts that protected people from discrimination these acts are: The Sex Discrimination Act 1975, The Race Relation Act 1995, The Equal Pay Act and The Discrimination Act. The Equality Act 2010 protects people form lots of different discrimination that is targeted to someone. Naima is rejected form a job within a shop which would have involved speaking t o customers.

individuals o Respecting diversity- different cultures and people's beliefs This Code of Conduct Policy is to set a high standard of the care workers responsibilities to provide good care. This ensures the workers and the users have their own rights protected. This Code of Conduct protects the users form any kinds of abuse that a social care worker might inflict on the users. E.g. bulling, not tending to duty (washing the users) and harassment. Also to protect the workers from the users form doing the same.

An example of the importance of diversity that's beneficial to the setting. A woman will approach a problem differently than a man would their gender diversity makes them provide solutions that the other wouldn't think otherwise. If it was me who was discriminated against within the workplace and it was completely ignored, I would feel excluded and not part of the team that works in the health and social care setting. It might lead me to possibly leaving this job and also that whole area of work because of the discrimination, knocking back my confidence so much. This leaving me with the feeling of rejection of living in this country and also feeling victimized because I have a different culture, gender etc. My feelings towards the company are feeling extremely appalled because of the way I have been treated and having to put up with this discrimination for so long. This is leaving me feeling unvalued as a human being in the UK in this day and age. ?? ?? ?? ?? Emma Baker (Upgraded) Unit 6 Task 3(P4) ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

Good knowledge of the Equality Act 2010 was demonstrated and key terms found within the Act were used appropriately although it would be helpful to explain what is meant by ‘protected characteristics’ and which would be relevant in Naima’s case. There was some confusion about the GSCC Codes of Practice and so I would suggest more reading on this and the purpose it serves (or served I should say, the GSCC no longer exists!) is required. A brief introduction to this whole piece of work or at least a summary of the criteria should have been provided to help the reader understand what should be covered. The word for M3 does not explain how the law promotes equality and diversity. The grammar, particularly on page 3 needs improvement. High marks cannot be awarded if the marker cannot understand what is being said. In health & social care it is important to express yourself clearly!
