DLA response to Equality Bill: Assessing the impact of a multiple discrimination provision.

This response shows that the DLA welcomes the Government's recognition of the gap in existing provision for protection against discrimination on multiple intersectional grounds; seeks to allay fears regarding any increased burden in bringing or defending claims of multiple intersectional discrimination; corrects a misunderstanding regarding appropriate comparators; argues that protection should be extended to cover indirect discrimination and harassment, on a combination of two or three protected grounds.
