Equality and Discrimination: The New Law (1st edition, 2010)

Oliver Hyams (contributor)
2010 (1st Edition)


This new work by Oliver Hyams provides an analysis of the Equality Bill that seeks to harmonise discrimination law, and to strengthen the law to support progress on equality.

The domestic law concerning discrimination is currently contained in five separate Acts and four sets of principal regulations, reflecting no less than six main EU Directives. The Equality Act 2010 will harmonise the law relating to equality and discrimination, and will replace all existing anti-discrimination law once in force.

Equality and Discrimination – The New Law provides a thorough and practical analysis of the new Act, and places it in the context of the old law and suggests how the new law is likely to work in practice. It will be essential reading for all lawyers and professional advisers dealing with employment and discrimination matters, as well as central and local government departments; schools, colleges and universities and their users; private clubs and other associations; and transport providers. The full text of the Act is reproduced in full.
