Sexual Orientation Claims
It is unlawful to discriminate against employees because of their sexual orientation. This is where an employee is treated less favourably for the sole reason of their sexual orientation.
As with sexual discrimination, discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation can be direct or indirect. And employees are also protected from harassment or victimisation all connected to sexual orientation. Ultimately, you could apply to the Employment Tribunal if subjected to sexual orientation discrimination if you have concerns about how your employer deals with your discrimination complaint; you have been sacked because of your sexual orientation; or you were refused employment because of your sexual orientation.
