Discrimination law has undergone considerable change and development in recent years. In addition to new regulations issued under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, new areas of discrimination have been developed - age, religion and belief, and sexual orientation. Existing laws have also been subject to amendment. Written by leading practitioners in the field, this authoritative and comprehensive guide gives the reader an excellent understanding of both law and practice. The book comprises two parts: Part 1 - provides explanation and detail of the law of discrimination as it applies to employment. It gives an overview of common concepts and goes on to cover the various types of discrimination law. Part 2 - offers a step-by-step guide to the conduct of discrimination cases in the employment tribunal. It includes practical guidance on procedure for both those prosecuting and those defending a claim. "Discrimination in Employment" is ideal for use before and during tribunal proceedings. It is clear and user friendly with illustrative flow charts, case studies and examples to illuminate this increasingly significant area of law.
Fully up-to-date, it includes coverage of the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006.
