Discrimination and Equal Opportunities

If you have been the victim of discrimination at work then taking action isn’t just vital for your career, but will also help you maintain your self-respect.

A greater awareness of discrimination over recent years has led to a tightening of the law, making it much more difficult for employers to evade their responsibilities and making it easier for affected employees to take action against discrimination in the workplace.

Discrimination can occur on the grounds of sex or marital status, race or ethnic origin, hours worked, trade union membership, sexual orientation, religion and belief, or age. Unlawful discrimination arises if a person is treated less favourably than someone else because of their sex or race etc. The comparison does not have to be with a real person but can be a hypothetical one. Discrimination may also arise from a dismissal or another issue such as harassment or victimisation.
