All types of Discrimination in the workplace
As an employer, it is important that you understand your legal responsibilities with regards to Discrimination Law.
Get in Touch
As an employer, you are required to prevent as well as know how to investigate and resolve discrimination issues when they do occur.
As an employee, Discrimination Law is a complicated and necessary area of law, offering protection to you from discrimination in the workplace. Under the main piece of anti-discrimination legislation, the Equality Act 2010, the law recognises protected characteristics. If a person possesses one of these, he/she is protected from discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Employers can’t discriminate against age, disability, gender reassignment, marital status or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
If you feel you have been wrongly treated during the course of your employment relating to any of the above, contact the Cupar office on 01334 654081.
