Following the structure of the Equality Act 2010, Discrimination Law covers every aspect of discrimination, giving practical and detailed advice on the full range of legal equality issues.
It considers discrimination in the arenas of employment law, goods and services, housing, education, and transport services across the fields of sex, race, disability, religious and sexual orientation discrimination, equal pay, and EU equality law. It also contains commentary on practice and procedure including its own guideline to the amount of awards in discrimination claims
In addition it includes specific sections on each of the protected characteristics in the EA 2010 while discrimination concepts which are common are addressed in the opening chapters. Common concepts are considered in detail at the outset, with special sections on matters specific to some aspects of discrimination. For each protected characteristic the legacy case law is now summarised in one place with extensive cross-referencing in brief but helpful footnotes.
