The law that covers discrimination in employment in the UK (England, Wales and Scotland, different provisions apply in Northern Ireland) is the Equality Act 2010.
It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against anyone at work because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, or membership (or non-membership) of a trade union.
An employee who believes they have been discriminated against at work may be able to bring a claim before an employment tribunal.
