Religion or belief

The Equality Act outlaws direct and indirect discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the basis of religion or belief.

General guidance is available on the implications within the workplace of this legislation and what to look out for in your organisation's policies and practices - see the downloadable resources below.


Responsibility for overseeing the legislation on religion or belief lies with the Equality and Human Rights Commission

Visit Interfaith Calendar for information on the sacred times and festivals for world religions to prepare for negotiations with your employer on avoiding discrimination based on religion or belief. There are also links on this site to other key dates.
