Question and answer
Q: describe ways in which discrimination may deliberately or inadvertently occur in the work setting
A: Discrimination may occur deliberately if someone is discriminating on purpose, such as being racist or sexist. [ Discrimination happening inadvertently may happen by doing something discriminately on accident, such as giving work to someone who isn't handicapped over someone who is because you may assume they cant, or may have trouble doing instead of asking. ]

Indirect discrimination occurs when policies and practices, which appear neutral or fair because they are applied to everyone, actually disadvantage people and particular groups within society. For example, if a job advertisement states that applicants must be able to drive then this could put a certain people at a disadvantage, such as those with a disability.
Positive discrimination is regarded as the preferential treatment of members of a minority group over a majority group, either by sex, race, age, marital status or sex orientation. So for example if you where to allow a particular less represented group of children over another to perform a task this is classed a positive discrimination.
If a practitioner has particular views concerning race or even religion, these views could be used in the setting unintentionally to have a negative or positive influence in a situation or particular child.
A practitioner may intentionally or intentionally categorise children in a particular way. So for example boys play with blue things and girls play with pink.
