Discrimination issues

Discrimination in employment can occur in a variety of ways, such as directly and indirectly, on grounds of numerous “protected characteristics” which include age, sex, disability as well as pregnancy & maternity, to name a few. An employer could also find themselves in hot water if they discriminate against a job applicant.

In the context of disability discrimination, this can also include a failure to make reasonable adjustments. It’s not unusual for an employee who is or has been absent due to sickness to claim they have been discriminated against, which means that absence should be managed carefully.

Employers can be liable for acts of discrimination committed by their employees in the course of employment so it’s important that any discrimination concerns are investigated quickly and thoroughly.
