SRA Competency B D


Religion and belief discrimination in the workplace has been unlawful since 2010, when religion and belief was enshrined as a protected characteristic in the Equality Act 2010.

The Equality Act prohibits direct discrimination, indirect discrimination and harassment in the workplace relating to religion, religious belief and philosophical belief. It also prohibits victimisation against employees who have taken steps under the Equality Act.

People's views about emotive matters such as Brexit, COVID-19, the environment, immigration etc., are becoming increasingly polarised, and disagreements about conflicting opinions can sometimes become toxic.

Aimed at employment lawyers and HR professionals, this new virtual classroom seminar will examine the very latest case law and will consider who is protected.

Expert speaker Emma Tegerdine will also offer guidance on how employment tribunals have navigated this tricky area of law.
