Since 2010, the Equality Act has legally protected certain characteristics from discrimination, including sexual orientation, gender identity and religion or belief. But how does this work in practice? Has your own or somebody else’s religion or belief proved a barrier to you as an LGB&T person at work, or when using everyday services? Have you experienced the positive effects of being LGB&T and having a religion or belief, or received positive treatment from a religion or belief based organisation? Share your views and contribute to the debate!
The Equality and Human Rights Commission has today launched a major call for evidence from individuals and organisations about how their religion or belief, or that of other people, may have affected their experiences in the workplace and in using the services and facilities they need in everyday life.
