QOCS: Discrimination claims in the civil courts

30 August 2017  

Huw Davies considers whether an injury to feeling is sufficient to trigger QOCS protection

While discrimination claims are usually heard in the employment tribunals, s114 of the Equality Act 2010 provides jurisdiction to the County Courts to hear discrimination claims against, inter alia, services providers (under Part 3 of the Act), landlords (under Part 4), education establishments (Part 6) and associations (Part 7).
