Religion or Belief

Under the Equality Employment Regulations 2003, it is now unlawful to discriminate against someone on the grounds of their religion or belief. This applies to both staff and students in Universities and Colleges.

The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) website has more information on the regulations.
