Sexual Discrimination

It is illegal to discriminate against employees or colleagues because of their actual or possible sexual orientation. Whether you are heterosexual, lesbian, gay or bisexual, or are believed to be so, you should not be treated differently to anyone else in the workplace when it comes to recruitment, working practices or opportunities.

Sexual Discrimination

Do you have a Claim?

It is illegal to discriminate against employees or colleagues because of their actual or possible sexual orientation. Whether you are heterosexual, lesbian, gay or bisexual, or are believed to be so, you should not be treated differently to anyone else in the workplace when it comes to recruitment, working practices or opportunities.

Sexual Discrimination by Employers

Unfortunately, some employers still want to know about sexual orientation as part of the recruiting process, but you are not obliged to answer questions about it, and they cannot legally consider it during their decision making process. Nor should it affect your chances of promotion or moving ahead with your career.

Sexual Discrimination by Colleagues

Every employer has a duty to protect members of staff from harassment or bullying by their supervisors or colleagues. All employees, no matter their sexual orientation, should have a fair hearing through an adequate grievance procedure if informal methods of dealing with issues have failed.
