Promoting equal opportunities

By Leela Ramdeen, Chair, CCSJ, & Director, CREDI

It may be timely to remind ourselves of legislation that exists in T&T to deal with various kinds of discrimination.  I am also an attorney-at-law and Lay Assessor on the Equal Opportunity Tribunal (EOT).

The Equal Opportunity Act, Ch 22:03, prohibits certain kinds of discrimination and seeks to promote equal opportunity between persons of different status. The Act covers four categories of discrimination—employment, education, the provision of goods and services and the provision of accommodation, if the discrimination is: (i) discrimination on the ground of status as defined in section 5; or (ii) discrimination by victimisation as defined in section 6; (b) offensive behaviour referred to in section 7.
