This research report reveals the knowledge, attitudes and practices of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) employers in relation to their duties under the Equality Act 2010.

The methodology consisted of two phases of primary research:

  • An initial small-scale, qualitative exercise among 10 SMEs.
  • A quantitative telephone survey amongst 1,002 SMEs.

In both phases the research covered SMEs employing 5 to 249 staff across Great Britain (excluding temporary or casual staff, agency staff or the self-employed).
