Race Discrimination Advice Glasgow

Employers operating in the UK are prohibited from engaging in Race Discrimination, and are obliged to ensure that there are no such practices within their organisation. The rules against Race Discrimination are comprehensive protecting not only an individual's nationality and ethnicity, but also their position when looking to be considered for promotion at work. The legislation that prohibits race discrimination in the workplace, the Equality Act 2010, recognises that discrimination can occur in a number of different ways;

  • Direct Discrimination

Direct Discrimination will occur where someone believes that they are being treated poorly by their employer, because of their race. Instances of Direct Discrimination are quite varied and can include situations where someone is treated less well because of the race of people that they are friendly with in the workplace.

  • Indirect Discrimination

Instances of Indirect Discrimination include occurrences where an organisations policy is described as being one which applies equally to all employees, but has a significant adverse impact on individuals of a particular racial group.

  • Harassment

Harassment will take place where someone becomes the target of negative behaviour in the workplace, osecureg to their race. This kind of behaviour can either negatively impact the environment that an individual works in, or has an adverse impact on the individual themselves.

  • Victimisation

An instance of Racial Victimisation is where someone is treated negatively due to the fact that they had previously made a complaint regarding race discrimination, or they have aided someone else in pursuing a complaint of Race Discrimination in the workplace.
