Legislation and Harassment
The sections of Law in the UK that mainly relate to harassment consist of:
The Sex Discrimination Act
The Sex Discrimination Act of 1975 prevents sex discrimination in any form which is deliberate (direct) or in-deliberate (indirect) against any person in employment. The Act can apply to both women and to men and individuals can be of any age.
Types of discrimination based on a person's sex can include harassment of a sexual nature or a situation which is unfortunately all too commonly heard of where a woman is treated less favourably or in any adverse manner because she is pregnant.
More indirect sex discrimination is a situation where a common practice or workplace condition is applicable to both men and women but could affect one sex much more than the other (e.g. height requirements within certain employment's may affect either sex).
Race Relations Act 1976
The Race Relations Act 1976, and as amended by the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000 prohibits discrimination against any person based on the issues of their race, nationality, colour, or ethnic/national origin.
This act also creates more duties upon your Local Authority to promote equality within racial issues/areas.
Harassment, abuse and violence which is physically based and incidents of a racist nature, inciting racial hatred are offences under Criminal Law - contact the Police immediately if you have experienced these for more advice and information.
The Act applies to these areas:
Employment and Jobs
Training & Education
Homes & Housing
The wide field of 'provision of goods, facilities and services' - this encompasses a huge area of where we go and what we use in every day life. From shopping, to using professionally based services, to accessing local community resources, it includes many different areas.
Disability Discrimination Act 1995
The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 introduces rights for disabled people in the areas of employment; getting goods and services; buying or renting property and access to goods and services.
The 1995 Disability Discrimination Act's main purpose is to prevent and eradicate discrimination that people who have disabilities regularly experience. Within the act, people who have a disability are given specific and certain rights within these different areas:
Access to different and many varied types of goods, facilities and services
Employment & Career
Property - In buying property or renting any land or property
This is a complex and detailed Act and one which further defines what a 'disability' actually is, for more information please visit disability.gov.uk
