Discrimination

Under the Equality Act 2010 the law recognises nine protected characteristics, so that if a person possesses one of these, he/she is protected from discrimination and harassment.
 
The protected characteristics are:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender re-assignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation


It is important that your staff understand and are trained in the standards of conduct and language used towards colleagues and customers which are acceptable within your work environment. Staff and potential staff will take comfort from knowing that you have clear policies demonstrating a commitment on your part to treat everyone fairly and with dignity.
