Have you got a fair workplace?


Fairness in the workplace is a vital part of a successful business. It is supported by the law - the Equality Act 2010 - and also makes good business sense in running and developing a business

The aim of the Equality Act is to improve equal job opportunities and fairness for employees and job applicants. Businesses should have policies in place so these outcomes happen and, just as importantly, to prevent discrimination.

Under the Act, it is unlawful to discriminate against people at work because of nine areas termed in the legislation as protected characteristics:

  • age

  • disability

  • gender reassignment

  • marriage and civil partnership

  • pregnancy and maternity

  • race

  • religion or belief

  • sex

  • sexual orientation.

There is no upper limit on the amount of compensation that can be awarded for discrimination.
