Equality at Work

Module code: LW7548 (double module)

‘Equality at Work’ engages in the critical examination of the effectiveness of protection against discrimination in the modern workplace. The main focus of this module will be on British legislation designed to prevent different forms of discrimination, and the legal rights of employees who have faced discrimination forbidden by British law: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race religious belief, sex and sexual orientation. We will also explore and critically evaluate the laws and polices promoting the reconciliation of work and family life.
