Everyone has the right to respect and equal treatment at work. But too many working people still face prejudice and discrimination.

As a union rep, you can play a central role in tackling discrimination and promoting equality in the workplace.

The Equality Act 2010 is the key piece of legislation dealing with workplace discrimination. It protects workers from discrimination based on age, sex, disability, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, or gender reassignment.
