The law on Discrimination is incredibly complex and ever changing. It’s essential that you have access to expert legal advice if you’ve been discriminated against at work.
There are six “protected” categories of discrimination under the 2010 Equality Act:
- Sexual orientation
- Religion and belief.
Discrimination can occur either directly, where an employee is treated less favourably as a result of one of these protected categories, or indirectly, where an employee is placed at a disadvantage because of one of these protected characteristics.
If you feel you’ve been discriminated against in the workplace, it’s essential to seek legal advice as soon as possible. You only have a maximum of three months to make a claim, starting with the most recent act of discrimination.
