For more than 20 years, I have organised for Equal Opportunities Review and the Trades Union Congress an annual conference on key issues in discrimination law.
The EOR-TUC conference is now open to discrimination lawyers, Government officials, equality and diversity specialists and others interested in attending the most authoritative review available of recent discrimination legislation and case law.
Join me and five of Britain’s leading discrimination law experts for a very special and exciting day. There will be comprehensive documentation for you to take away and refer to over the coming months.
I look forward to welcoming you in January.

Why attend the Discrimination Law in 2017 conference
Discrimination continues to be the most dynamic part of our employment law. Despite the fall-off in employment tribunal claims, each month brings new developments of practical importance for policies and procedures. No one who advises on employment law or equal opportunities can afford not to keep abreast of these vital changes and their implications for compliance.
Here are a few of the key recent or upcoming developments our outstanding speakers will be exploring at this top-level conference:
-The employment tribunal system is under review in both England & Wales and in Scotland, and major changes in the operation of ETs are likely.
-The final version of the mandatory gender pay gap reporting Regulations should be available and will be discussed at this conference.
-The EU Court of Justice will be deciding whether it is contrary to EU law for an employer to enforce a dress code prohibiting women from covering their heads at work.
-The judicial review challenge to employment tribunal fees was unsuccessful in the Court of Appeal, but fees are now under UK Government review and the Scottish Government is pledged to abolish them. The challenge itself is going to the Supreme Court.
-The Supreme Court has ruled that discrimination because of immigration status does not amount to “nationality” discrimination.
-The Court of Appeal has ruled that absence management policies are subject to the duty of reasonable adjustment.
-The EAT held that where an employee has become disabled and has been assigned to a less well-paid position, it can be a reasonable adjustment to protect the employee’s pay.
-Equal pay claims by shop workers comparing themselves to warehouse workers are going through the tribunals and courts.
-The Court of Appeal has given guidance on determining employment status and determining territorial jurisdiction under the Equality Act 2010.
-The Shared Parental Leave Regulations 2014 have come into force heralding a radical shake up of the law.
-Judgment is awaited from both the Court of Justice and Supreme Court on whether a pension scheme can refuse to pay a pension to a surviving civil partner at the same level as would have been paid to a surviving spouse.
