Direct discrimination is defined as:
Treating a person less favourably than others are or would be treated in the same or similar circumstances. This means treating someone less favourably than you would treat others in the same circumstances.
This occurs when a job requirement or condition is applied equally to all, and has a disproportionate and detrimental effect on one age group, gender or racial group because fewer of that group can comply with it, and the requirement cannot be justified in relation to the job. When decisions are made about an individual, the only personal characteristics taken into account will be those that, as well as being consistent with relevant legislation, are necessary to the proper performance of the work involved.
Harassment can be described as inappropriate actions, behaviour, comments or physical contact that is objectionable or causes offence to the recipient. It may be of a sexual or racial nature or it may be directed towards people because of their age, their sexuality, a disability or some other characteristic.
