Equality and Human Rights Commission Videos: Explaining Discrimination
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) have recently published a series of short videos, featuring members of the Scotland legal team, each of which explain different aspects of discrimination law, from the nine protected characteristics to the different forms of discrimination. All the videos are subtitled, short and straightforward. They cover topics such as:
- Equality law: discrimination explained
- What is disability discrimination?
- Different types of pregnancy and maternity discrimination
- What is harassment and victimisation?
- What is direct and indirect discrimination?
- What is the public sector equality duty?
These can all be found on the EHRC Youtube channel.
In addition, you can go to the EHRC website for further information on your rights under the Equality Act 2010 here.
