What is discrimination?

Direct discrimination occurs when a person (or a group of people) is singled out for worse treatment, compared to others in similar circumstances, because of one or more of the attributes. Direct discrimination may involve:
• making offensive ‘jokes’ about another person’s racial or ethnic background, sex, sexuality, age or impairment;
• expressing negative stereotypes about particular groups or using stereotypes as a basis for decisions.’
• using selection processes based on irrelevant attributes such as age, race or impairment.

Indirect discrimination occurs when one rule applies to all, but in fact disadvantages a person (or group of people) because they are unable, or less able to comply with the rule because they have an attribute. The fact that the disadvantage was not intended is not an excuse.

What is sexual harassment?

Sexual harassment is any form of unwelcome sexual attention that might offend, humiliate or intimidate the other person and may be experienced by women or men. It includes uninvited touching or physical contact; leering at a person or at parts of their body; talking about your sex life or asking about another person’s sex life; sexual jokes or propositions; sexually offensive communications (phone, email, SMS or other social media.)

Sexual harassment is against the law wherever and whenever it occurs. EbonySinglesTravel.com will not tolerate sexual harassment at any activity, event, excursion, or trip. Sexual harassment has nothing to do with mutual attraction. Such friendships are a private matter. Sexual harassment does not have to be repeated or continuous to be against the law. Some actions or remarks are so offensive that they constitute sexual harassment in themselves, even if they are not repeated. Other single incidents, such as an unwanted invitation or compliment, may not be sexual harassment. Some forms of sexual harassment, such as assault, physical molestation, stalking, sexual assault and indecent exposure, are also criminal offences.

The person being harassed does not need to say that the behaviour is unwelcome. Many people find it difficult to speak up. All clients and employees are responsible for their own behaviour. If you think the behaviour may offend, then don’t do it.
