Discrimination Seminar

16 May 2017

Field Court Chambers is running its annual series of employment law update seminars.  This year, members of our employment team will be speaking about discrimination, unfair dismissal and the gig economy, bringing participants up to date with the key cases and events of the past year.  Each session is limited to 10 participants and will be pitched to benefit everyone from partner level down to trainees.

The session will cover the key discrimination issues of the previous 12 months, including:

  • How far does the duty to make reasonable adjustments stretch after Paulley and Powell?
  • Do we need to know the reason why you were indirectly discriminated against? The Supreme Court decisions in Naeem and Essop examined (judgments given on 5 April 2017)
  • Dress to order or dress how you like? Consideration of Achbita, Bougnaoui and High Heels and Workplace Dress Codes.
  • Round-up of other interesting discrimination case law of the past year.

SPEAKERS: Jason Braier & Eirwen Pierrot
