Ensuring equality and diversity and avoiding discrimination, whilst at the same time meeting business needs can sometimes be a delicate balance, and will often depend on the particular facts and circumstances.
Types of discrimination include direct and indirect discrimination, harassment and victimisation. It is unlawful to discriminate based on protected characteristics which include: age; disability; gender reassignment; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief; sex and sexual orientation.
A business may never intend to discriminate against its staff, however with legislation and case law frequently changing, and individuals becoming more aware of this legislation it is unsurprising that businesses may on occasion find themselves facing grievances or tribunal claims alleging discrimination.
