“It said that NUIG intends to write to the Irish University Association and the Higher Education Authority to request that the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission be approached to carry out an equality review of the entire higher education sector.
NUIG is currently appealing an €81,000 award which the Equality Tribunal directed that it pay lecturer Mary Dempsey last summer, after it found that she was discriminated against by the university on the grounds of gender, family status and disability”

so the university is requesting that the HEA and human rights commission review the entire higher education sector while simultaneously appealing a judgement that found they had discriminated against a woman on the grounds of gender, family status and disability
