A wave of new legislation and an avalanche of case law are currently transforming discrimination law in the context of employment matters. 2003 alone saw the implementation of the Employment Act 2002's family-friendly and flexible working provisions and implementation of the EU race discrimination directive, while new laws prohibiting discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and religious belief came into force at the end of 2003. Amendments to disability discrimination law came into force in October 2004. There has also been a marked increase in the number and complexity of discrimination cases appearing before courts. This new looseleaf provides an in-depth analysis of discrimination law in the employment field and a practical guide to practice and procedure in this area. It is specifically focused on the needs of employment lawyers and may also be useful to HR professionals. It includes everything required to conduct a case in one practical volume. It provides in-depth coverage on levels of remedies and injury to feelings awards, combined with authoritative guidance on the substantive law and procedure. The features include: a dedicated service for employment lawyers focusing specifically on their needs; deals with an increasingly complex area of law now requiring specialist coverage; highly practical treatment of the subject; and compact, one-volume work kept current by regular releases.
