The work takes a task based approach to the subject, suggesting legal solutions to discretepractical problems, and providing clear, pragmatic guidance to enable practitioners to tackle the individual problems they might encounter.This book provides a clear and practical explanation of both good practice and the legislation behind the new proactive approach that is being adopted. It covers areas that receive no treatment elsewhere and offers guidance to organisations that want to implement equality measures but are unsure ofhow to do so. This book not only explains the relevant legal concepts but also offers real practical advice on topics such as how to carry out impact statements; how to carry out equality pay audits; and the role of monitoring.
