Discrimination at work can manifest itself in many forms. It is unlawful if the reason for the treatment is any of the following:
- religion or belief,
- sex or sexual orientation.
You are protected under employment law as a “worker” against workplace discrimination.
A “worker” is not only defined as an employee but ALL working people.
So, if you are self-employed, working through an agency, a director or a partner, you will be protected under the discrimination laws. You also, therefore, are protected even if you may not have a standard contract of employment.
Workplace discrimination cases can be highly complex so it is advisable to get expert legal advice.
