This definitive new looseleaf provides a comprehensive treatment of discrimination in employment, as well as in the areas of education, goods, and services, transport, and public services. With two releases a year, it provides up-to-date coverage of all recent equality legislation and case law.

Professor Sandra Fredman, Henrietta Hill, Gavin Millar QC, and Heather Williams QC, lead a team of highly distinguished contributors from Doughty Street and Old Square Chambers who will ensure you are fully up-to-date with all developments in this rapidly changing area. They are supplemented by an expert Editorial Advisory Panel of leading individuals, including Baroness Hale, John Wadham, and John Bowers QC, who ensure unprecedented breadth of coverage.

Offering in-depth analysis of all the relevant legislative provisions, and all recent case law, this title has a clear and logical structure, beginning with a summary of the main sources of law, and discussing a range of common concepts, prohibited grounds, areas in which discrimination can occur.

It also has extensive discussion of enforcement, including the role of the new Equality and Human Rights Commission, and remedies, and is practically focused, containing a range of useful checklists and flowcharts, forms and precedents, designed to guide you through this complex area. The work also contains consideration of potential arguments, especially relating to areas on which there is currently little existing case law, helping practitioners consider the ways in which the laws might develop.
