Discrimination – direct and indirect victimisation, harassment and reasonable adjustments

Recorded on: 21/06/2021

Discrimination as an area of employment law has a number of challenging features. It is broad in scope because it covers both employees (widely defined) and applicants. Compensation is not limited by statute and in addition there is the prospect for the parties of adverse publicity. The factual and legal complexity involved can mean the cost of bringing or defending a claim is substantial.

This webinar is geared to the needs of those advising and representing employers and employees. It covers the following topics:

  • who is protected?
  • the protected characteristics, with an analysis of the case law pertaining to each
  • what is required for direct and indirect discrimination, harassment or victimisation, with practical examples
  • the reversal of the burden of proof
  • employer’s liability and the reasonable steps defence
  • the definition of disability
  • failure to make reasonable adjustments, and unfavourable treatment for something arising from disability
  • remedies, including recommendations and the award of compensation
  • calculating compensation: pecuniary loss and personal injury
  • the Vento bands, injury to feelings and aggravated damages
  • calculation of interest
  • the conduct of the grievance procedure in cases of alleged discrimination
