The law protects you from discrimination in the workplace. Discrimination can occur at any time. You may be discriminated against because of your age, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or for being transsexual, married or in a civil partnership, being pregnant or having a child.

The law protects you from discrimination at all stages of your employment relationship including:

  • Recruitment
  • Employment terms and conditions
  • Pay and benefits
  • Promotion and transfer opportunities
  • Training
  • Redundancy
  • Dismissal

If you have a disability you have the same rights as your fellow workers. Employers should also make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to help disabled employees and job-applicants with:

  • Application forms and aptitude tests, e.g. giving extra time to complete the tests
  • Interview arrangements, e.g. wheelchair access, communicator support
  • Making sure the workplace has the right facilities and equipment for disabled workers or someone offered a job
  • Equal promotion, transfer and training opportunities
  • Equal terms of employment, including pay
  • Equal work-related benefits like access to recreation or refreshment facilities
