Discrimination Law Review Report: A Framework For Fairness

This is one of the DLA's most comprehensive analyses of the current state of anti-discrimination provisions in Britain. It uses the experience of DLA members, case law, and hypothetical cases to argue for a robust single equality bill and against any retreat from existing levels of protection. While generally supportive of the move towards a single equality bill, it raises several serious concerns regarding the possible content of a future bill, and makes a call for specific attention to be paid to positive action and multiple discrimination.
