Why Equality in the Workplace ?

When reference is made to ‘equality in the workplace’, this does not mean that everyone is equal. It refers to the way in which a person is treated in the workforce. Does he/she have the same opportunities as all other staff members given his/her skills and experience ? Are decisions about that person and/or behaviours towards them influenced by factors other than their demonstrated skills, abilities, and experience, e.g. gender, race, ethnic background, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and marital status. If decisions and behaviours are influenced, then this constitutes discrimination.
