1st Edition

International Workplace Discrimination Law

Edited By Jo Carby-Hall, Zbigniew Góral, Aneta Tyc Copyright 2024

    With contributions from top legal scholars, this edited collection provides an international overview of the most up-to-date issues and new trends in law regarding employment discrimination in different countries. Confronting the US, the UK, and Japan on the one hand, with the EU jurisdictions, namely Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Hungary, Slovak Republic and the Czech Republic on the other hand, this book pays special attention to the most significant changes to law in these countries and ongoing challenges they face. The monograph is complementary to a former one entitled "Discrimination and Employment Law: International Legal Perspectives", Joseph Carby-Hall, Zbigniew Góral and Aneta Tyc (eds.), Routledge 2023, and at the same time works as a separate volume. Adopting a problem-solving approach, this monograph offers an in-depth analysis of both anti-discrimination statutory law and of a growing and still developing corpus of case law. This book will appeal to students, academics and practitioners working in the field of labour and employment law, anti-discrimination law and human rights law, as well as to employers, employees, trade unions, the ETUC, the ILO, and policy-makers from all over the world.
