Under the Equality Act 2010, employees have protection against discrimination in the workplace because of:

People who belong to these groups have what are called protected characteristics.

The Equality Act also protects you if people in your life, such as family members, friends or co-workers have a protected characteristic and you are treated less favourably because of that. It should also be remembered there is no minimum service requirement of 2 years to bring a claim via an employment lawyer based on discrimination in the workplace.
