Amendments to the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 were due to be made on 1 October 2007 following the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC)’s successful judicial review challenge (see UK Employment Update September 2007). The EOC claimed that the Employment Equality (Sex Discrimination) Regulations 2005, which amended the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, did not go far enough to implement the amended Equal Treatment Directive. The High Court agreed and ordered the government to make further amendments. The government has now stated that it intends to implement the amendments by February 2008.
