On 29th March 2018, the ESC Rights initiative submitted a paper entitled: “Socio-Economic Status: a serious gap in Ireland’s equality legislation” to the Mr Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD (Chair) and the members of the Joint Committee on Justice and Equality.

The ESCRI raised concerns about the fact that in equality legislation there is no ground dealing with issues of inequality and discrimination arising from a person’s socioeconomic status. ESCRI strongly believes that this gap must be addressed as a matter of priority and is calling for the Equality (Miscellaneous
Provisions) Bill 2017
to be enacted as a matter of urgency.
