How am I protected against racial discrimination?
Under the Equality Act 2010 it is unlawful for employers to treat workers less favourably than others on account of their race, colour, nationality and/or ethnic origin. Workers are protected at all stages of employment, including recruitment and dismissal, against both direct discrimination and indirect discrimination. Discrimination includes harassment and victimisation.
There are some exceptions called 'Genuine Occupational Requirements', but these are very narrow.
