The Equality Act 2010 sets out discrimination law in relation to people with “protected characteristics” which are:
- Gender reassignment
- Marriage and civil partnership
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Religion or belief
- Sexual orientation
It is unlawful to discriminate against anyone who has a protected characteristic. This has implications for businesses in terms of employment issues, as well as other factors such as the business premises layout and even the accessibility of your business website.
