Workplace discrimination means being treated less favourably than someone else because of a protected characteristic.

Protected characteristics are defined in the Equality Act 2010 (age, gender, race, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy or maternity, gender reassignment, religious beliefs, disability).

Workplace discrimination can refer to a number of ways that an employer may treat someone unfairly based on these characteristics including: direct; indirect; failure to make adjustments; discrimination arising from disability; harassment; victimisation.
