Racial Discrimination Solicitors
Race discrimination law
The 1976 Race Relations Act makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against you on racial grounds. Race includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins.
It doesn’t matter if the discrimination is done on purpose or not. What counts is whether (as a result of an employer’s actions) you’re treated unfavourably because of your race.
The laws against racial discrimination at work cover every part of employment – including recruitment, terms and conditions, pay and benefits, status, training, promotion and transfer opportunities, right through to redundancy and dismissal.
The law allows a job to be restricted to a particular racial or ethnic group where there is a ‘genuine occupational requirement’; for example, if a black actor is needed for a film.
