Discrimination and harassment can be identified in the following protected characteristics:

Discrimination can be direct or indirect and you may also find that you are being victimised or harassed as this can follow on from you asserting your rights under discrimination legislation.
Other than age discrimination, direct discrimination cannot be objectively justified.
