Anti-Slavery to intervene on Hounga v Allen

The Supreme Court has granted permission for Anti-Slavery International to intervene in the case of Hounga v Allen. ATLEU are representing the Claimant, Ms Hounga. ATLEU is appealing against the finding of the Court of Appeal that Ms Hounga, who was a child victim of trafficking, cannot recover compensation for race discrimination from her trafficker because she was working illegally in the UK. The case will be heard in the Supreme Court on 31 March and 1 April 2014. The Equalities and Human Rights Commission are supporting the Claimant's case.
