The Equality Act of 2010 provides legislation aimed at tackling discrimination in general. All forms of discrimination are covered by the Act. This includes discrimination linked in any way to a persons gender and also covers discrimination arising out of gender reassignment. Employers should have policies in place to prevent such discrimination. These policies should cover the whole spectrum of managing the workplace including matters such as recruitment, promotion, training, disciplinary matters etc.
Discrimination is unlawful and if you have been a victim of this then you would be in a position to bring a claim to an Employment Tribunal. However, it can be best to raise matters with your employer first as this can often resolve matters quickly. We can do this on your behalf if required. If you are an employer facing such an issue then we can also advise you how to best resolve matters.
If you feel that you have been discriminated against due to your gender or gender reassignment then contact us to discuss your situation.
