User: Describe both direct and indirect discrimination

Weegy: Indirect discrimination will occur where a person imposes, or proposes to impose, a requirement, condition or practice that has, or is likely to have, the effect of disadvantaging people with a protected attribute, and that is not reasonable. [ ]

Direct discrimination occurs when a person is treated less favourably than another person because of a protected characteristic

Example:
A care home always gives smaller portions of food to women living in the care home and larger portions to men because they believe men have bigger appetites. This is irrespective of individual needs or preferences. This is direct discrimination against women living in the care home, on the grounds of sex.

Indirect discrimination happens when there is a rule, a policy or even a practice that applies generally but which particularly disadvantages people who share a protected characteristic.

Inclusion is defined as:

1.The action or state of including or of being included within a group or structure
- federal legislation now mandates the inclusion of students who are English language learners

2.A person or thing that is included within a larger group or structure
- the exhibition features such inclusions as the study of the little girl

3.A body or particle recognizably distinct from the substance in which it is embedded

Describe both direct and indirect discrimination that may occur in an adult social care setting
Weegy: New definition of direct discrimination Under the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 direct discrimination occurs if a person treats, or proposes to treat, [ someone unfavourably because of a personal characteristic protected by law. This removes the Equal Opportunity Act 1995's technical requirement to prove that certain treatment was less favourable than would have been received without the attribute, or with a different attribute in the same or similar circumstances (the comparitor test). The new test is whether or not certain treatment was unfavourable to the person claiming discrimination, focusing on the consequences of the treatment on the person claiming direct discrimination because of a protected attribute. Examples of direct discrimination An employer advises an employee that they will not be trained to work on new machinery because they are too old to learn new skills. The employer has discriminated against the employee by denying them training in their employment on the basis of their age. A real estate agent refuses an African man’s application for a lease. The real estate agent tells the man that the landlord would prefer an Australian tenant. ] (More)
