Discrimination in Employment is a comprehensive yet accessible and practical guide covering every aspect of workplace discrimination. Setting out in detail the employment provisions of the Equality Act 2010 it looks at the impact of the Act in practice with commentary on the accompanying statutory guidance and codes of practice. There is up to date coverage of emerging case-law from the employment tribunal to the Supreme Court and the CJEU.
The expert author team of discrimination and employment law specialists are at the heart of many of the major cases in this area and play an important role in the development of law and policy in this area. They provide a thorough explanation of the interaction between domestic and EU law and helpful guidance on interpretation of equality concepts in the context of international law.
