Caring for the disabled? New boundaries in disability discrimination

Roberts, Pauline Isobel 2009. Caring for the disabled? New boundaries in disability discrimination. Modern Law Review 72 (4) , pp. 635-647. 10.1111/j.1468-2230.2009.00761.x

The scope of the disability-related less favourable treatment provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 has been reduced by the House of Lords in a housing case, London Borough of Lewisham v Malcolm, while the European Court of Justice has taken a broad approach to disability discrimination and carers within the EC Framework Directive in Coleman v Attridge Law. In discussing both cases, this note suggests that the pre-Malcolm approach to identifying the comparator in disability-related discrimination claims should prevail in the employment context, in view of the obligations under the EC Framework Directive.
