Religion and belief

Under the Equality Act 2010 it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against you because of your religion or belief system. The law protects not only those who adhere to a recognised religion but also those who hold philosophical opinions including, agnosticism, atheism, humanism, paficism and veganism.

Finding employers committed to religious diversity

Employer websites can often be a good way of finding out about diversity amongst the workforce and how committed they are to recruiting people from different faiths. Most employers will have an equality statement or section on equality and diversity on their site. Employer websites can also be a great way to gauge how ethically the organisation is run.
