From exemption to inclusion: extending the reach of the Equality Act 2010 – with a little help from the Human Rights Act 1998

Discrimination Law Association Briefing

Here you can access a copy of an article published in February 2022 in the Discrimination Law Association journal which explains the recent judgment in the Employment Tribunal case of T v Ministry of Defence and its potential impact on the rights of disabled veterans.

The case is also a timely reminder of the importance and value of Section 3 of the Human Rights Act. In this case, s3 was used by the Tribunal to correct an error in the drafting of the underlying legislation in a way that ensured the original intention of Parliament was respected, and which protected the rights of a vulnerable Claimant.
