Rebecca Thomas, Head of Employment Policy at the EHRC, told the Global Equality and Diversity conference about the legal framework regarding dual discrimination – the laws exist but are poorly enforced and undermined by case law. She makes the case for tackling intersectional issues and dual discrimination at work.
