Who can be a victim of indirect discrimination?
Indirect discrimination covers a lot of protected characteristics. It applies to disadvantages caused by the following:
- Marriage or civil partnership
- Sexual orientation
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Religion or beliefs
- Gender reassignment
Here's an example...
For example, say Papa John’s pizza needs a delivery driver. Papa John’s states that they want all applicants to have a valid UK motorcycle licence. This is not discriminatory to someone with a disability that affects their driving. This is because this requirement is essential to perform the role.
