Real and lasting equality at work is achieved by collective organisation. The Equal Pay Act in 1975 was the product of women machinists industrial action at Fords. The Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000 is a tribute to the sweat and tears of the Lawrence family following the bloody murder of their son Stephen. Understanding the legal framework is an excellent step towards effective workplace organisation capable of delivering equality and diversity.

_Too few people know of or understand the complex framework of legislation aimed at preventing discrimination at work. This confusion is likely to increase when the European Employment Directive becomes fully operational in the UK. For that reason I welcome this timely and authoritative
report from the Institute. The chapters – each written by a different leading expert – both educate and provoke the reader and will do much to progress a wider understanding of this expanding area of law._
Wendy Foulger, Director- Legal Strategy Unit, EOC

Developments in discrimination law over the last 30 years have introduced much needed protection for some of the most marginalized workers. Yet discrimination and inequality of opportunity persist. The aim of this book is to contribute to public understanding of this complex area of law and to project ideas on how to strengthen and clarify the current framework of law.
Carolyn Jones, Director, Institute of Employment Rights

We welcome this publication for its attention to detail, its clarity of argument but perhaps most of all for its central aim of developing a comprehensive and coherent framework of equality law in the UK.
