27. Discrimination law  

This chapter examines the key provisions of discrimination law.

The chapter discusses the various protected characteristics (for example, age, sex, disability etc) and looks at the various forms of prohibited conduct in relation to each characteristic (for example, direct discrimination, indirect discrimination, harassment, victimization).
