It is unlawful for your age to be the cause of less favourable treatment in your workplace or in vocational training.
Religion and belief
Your religion or belief, or those of somebody else, should not interfere with your right to be treated fairly at work, at school, in shops or while accessing public services such as health care and housing.
Whether you are gay, lesbian, bisexual or straight should not put you at a disadvantage.
