Podcast: Justifying indirect discrimination

In this week's podcast, we explore the steps that you can take to reduce the risk of having an indirectly discriminatory provision, criterion or practice. We also discuss what to take into account when deciding whether or not indirect discrimination can be justified.

In particular, this week's podcast looks at:

  • the difference between direct and indirect discrimination;
  • conducting a risk assessment to identify indirect discrimination;
  • what steps you can take if you spot an indirectly discriminatory provision, criterion or practice; and
  • legitimate business reasons used in case law to justify indirect discrimination.

In addition to listening to the audio, you can download the podcast transcript.

Presenter Jeya Thiruchelvam is joined by Bar Huberman. Edited and produced by Clare Allerton.
