The article focuses on an Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS)/Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) research project which aims to identify the best practice for dealing with sexual orientation and religion or belief issues. The study has shown that sexual orientation cases tend to be related to direct discrimination and are dominated by claims of bullying and harassment, including name calling, threats and physical assaults. Religion or belief cases tend to involve indirect discrimination, as well as harassment.
