The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful to discriminate against someone because of one or more protected characteristics.
The protected characteristics are: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
If an employee feels they have been treated unfairly because of who they are, it may be unlawful discrimination. Our Employment Law Service is here to advise and support your business regarding the handling of these concerns.
If you want to talk about any discrimination matter, then please contact Peter Marshall.
