New guidelines on how to avoid discriminatory advertising

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has published new guidelines to help companies steer clear of discrimination laws when recruiting new staff or advertising their services.

The guidelines point out that placing a discriminatory advert is unlawful under the Equality Act 2010 (‘the Act’).

The Act protects individuals from discrimination because of sex, race, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, marriage and civil partnership, religion and belief, sexual orientation and age - these are described as protected characteristics.
