This half-day course is part of an expanding set of nationally provided sessions on discrimination under the 2010 Equality Act.

Intended for activists who have already completed an introductory employment law course, it looks at discrimination on the basis of religion or philosophical belief.

The session will cover direct discrimination against workers because of their religion; the position when workers need time off for religious sabbaths, holidays or prayers; free speech and the limits to protection (when someone can be dismissed eg for inappropriate proselytising or for refusing to uphold the rights of others).
