Put simply, discrimination is about the right to be treated fairly in all employment related decisions. Whilst most employers will do all they can to ensure that a culture exists within their organisation that promotes equality and fairness, discrimination continues to exist in various forms.
The laws around discrimination were combined in the Equality Act 2010. This is a complex and lengthy piece of legislation and covers all areas of discrimination from pre-employment (for example advertising, selection procedures and interviews) to post employment (for example the provision of references to former employees).
