Discrimination and Equality
We have a wide range of expertise in all aspects regarding the legal protection from discrimination and the regulation to promote equality and diversity. Governed by the Equality Act 2010, this area of law encompasses work within a number of other legal regimes, including:
- Education law,
- Election law,
- Employment law, particularly in regard to equal pay,
- Police law,
- Immigration law, and
- Public law.
We represent a number of different types of clients, both claimants and defendants, in cases ranging from discrimination issues in employment tribunals and school exclusion panels, to ground-breaking cases in the Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights that develop the law in this area. We have members on the approved list of the Equality and Human Rights Commission and we regularly act for NGOs and campaign organisations.
