The Disability Rights Commission's (DRC) head of legal Pauline Hughes is leaving the organisation to take up a full-time role as an employment tribunal chair. She will be replaced by the DRC's head of casework Rebecca Howard. The DRC legal department consists of five lawyers in Manchester and two in Scotland.
