Following the seminal decision by the Supreme Court in the Michalak case regulators are now exposed to claims for race, sex, disability and other types of discrimination in the employment tribunal.
This seminar will explore the legal and practical ramifications of this decision and will cover:
Communication and understanding the patient or service user can often be critical in the provision of healthcare and welfare.
In this seminar, 7BR are going to give you an overview of the Equality Act and the acts of discrimination that may be claims or mines in your cases. Our clinical negligence and court of protection experts will highlight particular issues in both types of proceedings that engage the Equality Act.
Most importantly, our team will provide valuable guidance on how to run arguments based on, claims for, or defences against, discrimination within the meaning of the Equality Act.
Equality in the public law sphere has mostly been the domain of arguments premised on Article 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights, but with the public sector equality duty featuring in judicial reviews, 7BR will be speaking on the value that can be added to judicial review claims utilising the Equality Act and whether there is any scope to go beyond it. Our talk will deal with whether and what claims can be considered in the context of judicial review challenges and how to recognise whether a case would be better served as a private law Equality Act claim.
Part 3 of the Equality Act is probably the second most trodden area of the Act since its inception in 2010 and with its broad application, 7BR will talk you through Equality Act claims in the commercial supply of goods and services. In this seminar, we will be providing an update on cases in this area. We will also provide some insights into ensuring that that services are designed to fully accommodate Equality Act provisions.
