Discrimination occurs when you are treated less favor at the same place where others get more opportunity. It’s important to know your human rights. Discrimination treated can be based on a person’s age, disability, gender reassignment, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, genetic makeup, and other personal characteristics. Human rights act can’t protect you always from all discrimination. There are other acts such as the Equality Act 2010.
Discriminate can be direct or indirect. For example, a requirement that all employees age under 30 may be indirect discrimination. Discrimination can occur in different aspects of life such as applying for a job, obtaining a loan or mortgage, being unable to access a store or restaurant due to a disability, or being passed over for a promotion at work, attempting to rent an apartment.
