Act now on teachers' exception from fair employment laws

Act now on teachers' exception from fair employment laws
Blog article by Geraldine McGahey

Writing in her latest blog, Geraldine McGahey, Chief Commissioner of the Equality Commission, said:

"It was great to see unity of purpose across the Assembly chamber on Monday 17 May in the debate on removing the exception of teachers from the fair employment laws. It was clear that everyone in the Chamber agreed that teachers deserve the protection of the law at work just as much as everyone else. 

It is the Commission’s view is that all teachers should be able to enjoy the same legislative protections as other workers, and that it is no longer acceptable to exclude the entire teaching workforce from the provisions of the fair employment legislation."
