Discrimination at Work

Discrimination at work can be very unsettling and there are several types of discrimination which an employer, or employee, can be found guilty of.

Discrimination, what does it mean?

Discrimination is when an employer treats one employee differently to another. It could be the employer pays a male worker more than they pay a female worker for doing exactly the same job, this could be seen as discrimination. Another example of discrimination could be race discrimination, an employee of ethnic origin may feel they are not receiving the same benefits as other colleagues and their career is suffering as a consequence.

If your employer treats you differently to another employee for an unlawful reason, you may have a case for discrimination. If you are treated unfairly for any other reason, this is not unlawful discrimination. The law currently protects you against discrimination based on your: age, sexual orientation, race, gender, religion or belief pregnancy and maternity leave, marriage or civil partnership, nationality, gender reassignment, disability, colour or ethnic background
