Quick Reference

Under European equality legislation, victimization occurs when an employer treats a worker adversely because they have either made a complaint or taken a legal case aimed at enforcing their right to equal treatment on the basis of sex, race, age, disability, sexual orientation, or religion and belief. The Equal Treatment Framework Directive states explicitly that national legislation must protect employees from victimization of this kind and UK equality statutes and regulations allow workers to take a complaint of victimization to an Employment Tribunal.
