Indirect discrimination

Indirect discrimination, under the Equality Act 2010, is a type of discrimination that occurs where A applies to B an apparently neutral provision, criterion or practice that A would apply equally to others, but which puts or would put those who share B's protected characteristic at a particular disadvantage. There will be no discrimination if the provision, criterion or practice is objectively justified.

To protect your staff from discrimination you should have an equal opportunities policy.
