Gender Reassignment

Gender Reassignment is one of the protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010. The definition of gender reassignment has been amended to cover people who have proposed, started or completed a process to change their sex. A transsexual person has the protected characteristics of gender reassignment. Protection remains for people undergoing gender reassignment from discrimination due to absence from work and studies.

The Board of Governors and the University Strategic Management Group affirm their responsibility for implementing equality for everyone in all activities and responsibility of the University. This commitment is consistent with the significant progress the University has already made in this area.

We will comply with the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 with regard to Gender Reassignment.
