Joshua Yetman has written an article which has been published as part of the Discrimination Law Association’s latest “Briefings” edition.
The article comments on a recent Court of Justice of the European Union decision: CG v Department for Communities in Northern Ireland C-709/20.
CG addresses alleged discrimination against EU nationals that have a limited right to remain in the UK post-Brexit. The key issue was whether the UK’s refusal to award Universal Credit to those with “pre-settled status” is lawful. In finding that this refusal is lawful, the Court reformulated the question referred and applied the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union to the facts. The decision has stark implications for the application of EU discrimination law within the UK as it applied before the UK left the EU.
