Sex and race discrimination are becoming increasingly important areas of employment law. Workers are becoming aware of their rights under the law and are much more willing to pursue those rights through industrial tribunals. Tribunals have faced the twin pressures of an increase in the number of discrimination claims brought and the need to keep pace with European developments. The result has been a large number of reported cases, inevitable inconsistency and a search for a principle to remove that inconsistency.;This volume draws together established and recent case law in an attempt to identify common threads that might assist practitioners negotiating their way through the Sex Discrimination Act and the Race Relations Act.
