Submission to the Citizens` Assembly on Gender Equality, 2020

Community Law & Mediation has seen a strong demand for free legal advice and representation in relation to employment equality issues, including direct and indirect gender discrimination, in recent years. Our submission to the Citizens’ Assembly on Gender Equality makes recommendations in relation to the following issues which impact on gender equality:

  • Access to Justice and the limitations of the Civil Legal Aid Scheme
  • Safeguarding rights in an environment of precarious work and low pay
  • Indirect discrimination by under-valuing of the contribution of unpaid care-givers to the economy
  • The State Pension (Contributory) and discrimination against older women
