Did you know that discrimination is a legally defined term? Unlawful conduct from your employer may be categorised as different types of discrimination, harassment and victimisation. However, in most cases, the starting point is whether the things you are going through are linked to a “Protected Characteristic”. The protected characteristics are:
Marriage & civil partnership
Pregnancy and maternity
Religion or belief
