Making Sense of Employment Law
It is against the law to discriminate against a worker because of:
- gender re-assignment (ie being or becoming a transsexual person)
- race, colour, national or ethnic origin
- religion or belief
- sexual orientation
- marriage and civil partnership
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.
