The law relating to discrimination has expanded rapidly in recent years, creating a complex web of legislation that can easily take the unwary by surprise. Currently it is unlawful to discriminate in the workplace on the grounds of:
- Sexual orientation
- Religion or belief
- Gender reassignment
- Civil partnership
- Pregnancy & maternity.
Whilst many forms of potential discrimination are easy to identify and avoid, the full effects of modern discrimination legislation are often unseen and misunderstood.
