People with disfigurements should be judged fairly without prejudice or bias, and treated fairly and equally at work, in shops, in restaurants - everywhere

Achieving Face Equality In The Workplace

People with visual differences should be judged fairly without prejudice or bias, and treated fairly and equally at work, in shops, in restaurants – everywhere.

The Equality Act 2010 provides legal rights for people with severe disfigurements and protects them from appearance-related discrimination. However, many employers, service providers and even people with visible differences remain unaware of what this can mean in practice.

And nine out of ten people unwittingly judge those who have visible differences to be less attractive, less likely to succeed and less easy to work with.

That is why we have created the Face Equality at Work campaign. We work with both employers and people with visible differences, and the rest of society to enable everyone to face disfigurement with confidence.

We provide advice and consultation services to employers and their employees, including those affected directly or indirectly by a visible difference. We also offer advice to jobseekers towards creating the right work atmosphere and customer service experience.
