Discrimination

It is against the law to discriminate against a worker because of:

  • age
  • disability
  • gender re-assignment (ie being or becoming a transsexual person)
  • race, colour, national or ethnic origin
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy

These are called ‘protected characteristics’.

Employees are also protected from discrimination if they are associated with someone who has a protected characteristic, eg a family member or friend or if they’ve complained about discrimination or supported someone else’s claim.

Contact us for more information about discrimination.
