How can discrimination occur and how can I be discriminated against?
Discrimination comes in many different forms including:
1. Direct discrimination – this occurs when someone is treated less favourably because of a protected characteristic such as age.
2. Indirect discrimination – this occurs when an organisation or association puts rules or arrangements in place that apply to everyone however this as an adverse effect and puts someone with a protected characteristic at an unfair disadvantage.
3. Harassment – harassment occurs when unwanted behaviour linked to a protected characteristic such as age violates someone’s dignity or creates an offensive and threatening environment for them.
4. Victimisation- victimisation occurs when someone is treated less favourably or unfairly because they have complained about discrimination or an act of harassment.
