How might I be affected by discrimination?
Discrimination exists in society. The Equality Act 2010 exists to tackle discrimination and bring to justice those who discriminate because of a person’s sex, race, disability, age, religion or belief, marital status, sexual orientation or transgender status.
Example of discrimination include:
Education, e.g. school dress codes
Housing e.g. private landlord refusing to rent properties to women with children or people from a particular country
Financial services e.g. mortgage lenders imposing additional conditions on the over-50s
Public services e.g. restricted access to public buildings for wheelchair users
Supply of goods e.g. refusing to provide a wedding cake for a gay wedding
Supply of services e.g. overcharging female customers, refusing to service a customer wearing religious clothing.
