What is Sex Discrimination?
  • Unlawful sex discrimination happens when someone
    is treated unfairly because of their gender.
    Women, men and transsexual people can all
    experience sex discrimination.
  • Sex discrimination also includes treating someone
    less favourably because they are married or in a
    civil partnership for example, by not hiring
    married women

Sex Discrimination at WORK
  • Women and men, including transsexual people, have
    the right not to be discriminated against at work
    because of their sex.
  • Direct discriminationDirect sex discrimination
    is less favourable treatment of a woman than a
    man (or vice versa) because of their sex.
  • Indirect discrimination Indirect sex
    discrimination occurs when an employer applies a
    provision, criterion or practice equally to both
    women and men that puts one sex at an unfair
    disadvantage.
