DISCRIMINATIONINTRODUCTION Discrimination is treatment or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing is perceived to belong to rather than on individual merit.Direct Discrimination Under similar circumstances, when a person with a protected characteristic is treated less favourably than others, it is direct discrimination. For example– you have the qualifications and experience necessary for the job but your application is turned down because you are‘tooyoung’ or‘too old’.Indirect Discrimination If there is a rule or policy in the workplace that puts you at a disadvantage as compared to others, it may be considered indirect discrimination. For example– an organization includes a clause that forces all employees to work on Sunday. This puts Christians at a particular disadvantage as it is common knowledge that Sunday is a day of worship for Christians. You have a right to challenge the clause if it affects you directly.Discrimination on the Basis of • Race • Caste • Appearance • GenderRacial Discrimination Racial DiscriminationRacial (Race) Descrimination Race discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (such as hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features).Ex- It would be discrimination if a real estate agent refuses to rent a house to a person because they are of a particular racial background or skin colour.What We Mean But Appearance Discrimination? • Physical features discrimination • It is discriminate against anyone in the workplace because of their physical appearance. • For example-height, weight, body shape, disfigurement, skin condition, scar or birthmark.
