Everyone is entitled to equal access to work opportunities and to be treated fairly at work, regardless of their age, sex, race, gender identity, disability, intersex status or sexual orientation.

A person's private life, whether they are in a relationship, pregnant, have caring responsibilities or choose to wear religious dress should also not prevent them from accessing employment.

This includes equal conditions at work and being treated fairly by your boss and co-workers.

Equal opportunity law applies not only to paid jobs but also to volunteering, work experience placements and apprenticeships or traineeships.
