Protecting your rights at work

It is against the law for employers to discriminate against their employees on grounds of their disability, race, sex, sexual orientation, age, marriage and civil partnership, gender reassignment, or religion or belief under the Equality Act 2010.

Progressing a discrimination claim

You can complain to the Employment Tribunal if you have been disadvantaged at work due to discrimination.

If you succeed with a claim for discrimination, your employer can be ordered:

  • To pay compensation – including compensation for injury to feelings
  • To take steps to reduce the adverse effect of the discrimination

If the discrimination happened when you applied for a job, the Tribunal can recommend that you be offered it and if the employer refuses they can be ordered to pay you compensation.
