What is Indirect Discrimination?

Indirect discrimination is when your employer applies a provision, criterion or practice (PCP) to everyone at work in the same way, but it puts people with a particular protected characteristic at a particular disadvantage [section 19 Equality Act 2010 (EQA 2010)].
