Many people mistakenly assume that claims for discrimination are limited to claims arising out of an individual’s employment. The remit of the Equality Act 2010 however is vast and covers a huge array of issues including Education provisions as well as the manner in which companies ought to treat members of the public.
If an individual suffers discrimination by virtue of a protected characteristic then they may be able to claim damages for Injury to Feelings and associated losses against the individual or company concerned.
Under Section 13 and Section 19 of the Equality Act 2010, an individual or company must not directly or indirectly treat and individual less favourably by virtue of the individual possessing a protected characteristic.
Protected Characteristics include, for example, sex, race, religion, disability and age.
Examples of civil discrimination may include a shop not providing disabled access or a salesperson who treats a customer in a less favourable manner due to a protected characteristic.
