Protection against LGBTQ+ discrimination
Members of the LGBTQ+ community are no strangers to discrimination. It can be experienced at school, the workplace, as well as social situations. Most, if not all of our community will have had bad experiences. And some will have endured sustained campaigns. Despite the introduction of the Equality Act in 2010, with further updates in 2011 (Public Sector Equality Duty), discrimination is still prevalent. And it has many guises, some examples being:
There is no place in a modern, democratic society for such behaviour. If you believe you have been discriminated against, treated unfairly or repeatedly harassed on the basis of your sexuality or for any other reason which is expressly prohibited by law – age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, sex, race, religion or belief – we can help you. Sadly discrimination in the workplace is still a reality, and we recognise that many LGBTQ+ individuals may suffer in silence due to embarrassment, concerns over possible escalation or the fear of corporate negligence.
