One of the biggest mistakes you can make as an employer is to treat an employee differently, or unfairly, for any reason. You could be opening yourself up to an accusation of discrimination, even if it's unintentional on your part.
What is discrimination?
In a world where the possible grounds for discrimination have now reached well into double figures, and with there being almost as many different types of discrimination as there are protected characteristics, it is almost inevitable that virtually every employee has at least one ground to make an accusation that they may have been discriminated against.
Some examples of this would be an employee who feels they are being paid less than their male colleagues because they are female, an employee who believes they have been missed out on a promotion due to their age, or a candidate for a job who thinks they didn’t get the role because of their religion.
