Does anyone know if there will be any legal issues when the isolation period ends for travellers coming into the country?

 

it appears that jabbed folk will no longer have to isolate but there is no mention of unjabbed. 

It appears to me that this could be against the law and discriminatory by forcing people to isolate returning to U.K. just because they don’t have a jab. Jabbed can still catch and spread covid just like any unjabbed person so I was wondering what the thoughts of people were in relation to this.

I suspect that there could be, if anyone wants to sue for damages, perhaps, if they are disrupted by it. Not just one law, either. How about the Harassment Act 1997, the Human Rights Act 1998, and the Equality Act 2010? The point you make seems to be valid, and appears to be an obvious issue that an experienced solicitor would grab hold of in relation to offences against any of those established Acts.

@johnk if that were a given fact, then the internet, magazines and all advertising media would be full of those “no win, no fee solicitor adverts” along the lines of, “Have you not had your covid vaccines yet? Have you been discriminated against? “ 

unfortunately, vaccine status is not currently covered by the Equality Act of 2010.

The way I see it is they are using public safety as the reason to isolate people. At the minute it is both jabbed and unjabbed. If they were to remove this altogether for the jabbed and leave isolation for the unjabbed then surely it has to be against article 5 (right to Liberty and security) and can not be on the grounds of public health as a jabbed person can still catch and spread it. So you’re being detained in your home for no valid reason. Just my thoughts anyway and there’s no info on what is going to happen.
