Race and religious belief are both protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010.

Employers who treat workers (not just employees) less favourably because of race or religious belief might be discriminating.

Workers who raise concerns about related legal rights must not be subject to detriments as this can amount to victimisation.

With these types of cases, an unbiased and fair investigation is very important. Where the worker is still employed a prompt and meaningful apology and training on equal opportunities can be all that is required.

Employers who take these steps can also have a defence to discrimination claims known as the ‘reasonable steps’ defence.
