This new title comprehensively covers the law of disability discrimination, particularly in light of the Equality Act 2010.

The book provides an overview of the law and a guide to managing litigation. It also explores the option of conciliation, of which, the authors have much experience.

This comprehensive book:

  • Sets out the background to the Disability Discrimination Act 1995
  • Outlines the definitions of the Equality Act, including disability as a protected characteristic and the distinction between direct and indirect discrimination
  • Covers all relevant issues including victimisation and harassment, associative and perceived discrimination, and the public sector equality duty
  • Includes a dedicated chapter on mental health conditions which can require a particularly sensitive approach to case management
  • Demonstrates how with the right policies, practices and procedures in place, employers can ensure compliance with disability discrimination legislation and avoid the financially and reputationally damaging risks associated with disability discrimination claims
  • Relevant materials are reproduced as appendices
The work will be regularly updated online to ensure readers are kept up to date with the latest developments.
