Half-day event on employment law on 10 June.

The Centre for European Law and Integration (CELI) is organising a half-day seminar on Employment Law and the Equality Act 2010 for law students and anyone else with an interest in the topic.

The Equality Act 2010 is the biggest legislative reform of British equality law since its introduction. It consolidates a range of legislative instruments into a single act and makes significant changes to the substantive content of the law. This seminar will provide an overview of the key features of the Act, as well as critical reflection on its implications for pursuing equality in the workplace. It also considers the relationship between the Act and those forms of labour market discrimination that remain outside its scope.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Lizzie Barmes, Professor of Labour Law, Queen Mary University of London
  • Sally Brett, Equalities Officer, TUC
  • Barbara Cohen, Independent Law Consultant and former Head of Legal Policy at the Commission for Racial Equality
  • Plus Pascale Lorber and Professor Mark Bell from our School of Law.

Attendance at the seminar costs £30 for professionals (CPD points are available) and £15 for students and unwaged. And it’s completely free for students who started on our distance learning LLM in Employment Law last year.

The event takes place on the Fourth Floor of the Charles Wilson Building on Friday 10 June 2011, registration from 1.00pm. For more information please contact Paul Wysocki: pakaw1@le.ac.uk
