The Equality Bill has now completed its report stage and had its third reading in the House of Commons. The Bill contains a number of amendments including the addition of a new clause on pre-employment enquiries about disability and health, which aims to prevent employers from asking questions about disability and then failing to consider candidates because of their disability. Such enquiries are thought to be one of the main reasons why disabled people often fail to reach the interview stage. The majority of other amendments clarify existing provisions.
