Discrimination in the workplace

Employees and workers have the right not to be discriminated in a position in the workplace on the following grounds:

  • sex;
  • marital or civil partnership status;
  • pregnancy or maternity leave;
  • sexual orientation;
  • gender reassignment;
  • race;
  • religion or belief;
  • age; or
  • disability

There are, in the main, four ways in which one person and therefore an employer may discriminate against another, which are:

  • by directly discriminating against them;
  • by indirectly discriminating against them;
  • by victimising them; and
  • by harassing them.

There are also two further forms of discrimination specific to disability discrimination, which are:

  • discrimination arising from a disability; and
  • failing to make reasonable adjustments.

A person should also not be discriminated against because they are either a part-time or fixed-term worker.

The law in this area is complicated and it is extremely important that you seek advise at every stag. We can support you through the process of reaching a resolution or pursuing a claim .
