The fifth edition of Discrimination Law and Practice has been completely updated and provides a comprehensive analysis which simplifies the complex definitions of unlawful discrimination including direct and indirect discrimination, reasonable adjustments and harassment. The book then provides the reader with detailed commentary about the protected areas covered by the legislation including employment, education and the provision of goods and services as well as the available defences.
The book also addresses one of the most challenging aspects of practising in this area – what relief is reasonable to claim. In this context the authors distil recent cases concerning the level and foundation for damages and other relief to ensure that the reader has a clear understanding of the likely stakes and potential outcomes in bringing or defending discrimination claims.
This concise account of discrimination law in Australia, now in its fifth edition by popular demand, brings clarity with depth and is suitable for all involved in this branch of the law including lawyers, business people, human resources practitioners and industrial relations staff, advocates and students.
