Equality law in Ireland

Resource summary

This Irish employment law factsheet for CIPD members gives introductory guidance on equality and discrimination law. It lists the nine types of discrimination recognised by the Employment Equality Acts and explains the difference between direct and indirect discrimination. It also covers how harassment and victimisation are treated under the equality legislation. It then looks in more depth at disability discrimination, discrimination due to pregnancy and age discrimination. Finally it explains where the burden of proof lies in discrimination cases and sets out the level of redress the Equality Tribunal can award.
