An employer is not allowed to discriminate against an employee on the basis of race, sex, age, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation or because the employee is pregnant or has had a child, or have undergone gender reassignment, or are married or are in a civil partnership.
Discrimination usually occurs when an employee receives less favourable treatment than another employee, on the basis of their membership of a group protected by equality legislation.
At Eric Robinson Solicitors we can advise both employer and employees in respect of any of the four main types of discrimination:
- Direct discrimination
- Indirect discrimination
