6.6 Race (colour, ethnic or national background)

Tips on Avoiding Discrimination under the Equality Act (2010) for Race:

  • Requiring a UK-based qualification, when equivalent qualifications obtained abroad would also meet the requirement for that particular level of knowledge or skill, may lead to indirect discrimination because of race, if the requirement cannot be objectively justified.

  • An interview panel makes an applicant feel humiliated by telling jokes about their race  =  Harassment.
