Research: 53% of Britons feel they have been discriminated against at work
More than half of all Britons in employment feel that they have been victim to a variety of discrimination in their workplace at some point in their career, a new study has revealed.
According to research conducted by HR consultancy Reabur, which involved surveying almost 2,000 individuals, 53 per cent believe they have been discriminated against, HR Magazine reports.
The most common basis for such issues was found to be gender, with 68 per cent of the 53 per cent indicating they had been treated unfairly in this regard, the majority of which being female.
Meanwhile, around a third - 31 per cent - stated they had been a victim of race discrimination, with weight - 57 per cent - also representing a common theme.
Kirsty Burgess - co-managing director of Reabur, a firm based in Bristol and Gloucester - commented: "No employee should feel as though they aren't treated equally for any reason."
