Indirect discrimination examples:
Highlighted below are three examples of indirect discrimination:
1. There’s a clause in your contract which says you may have to travel around the UK at short notice. It may be difficult for you to do this if you’re a woman with young children, as women are generally more likely to be their children’s carers.
2. Another example of indirect discrimination, maybe a minimum height requirement for a job where height is not relevant to carry out the role. Such a condition would likely discriminate disproportionately against women (and some minority ethnic groups) as they are generally shorter than the average UK man.
3. You require that all your staff work on Sundays. Brining in this rule may discriminate against people of certain religions who cannot work on this day.
