Explain the impact of each on Thorpe Park
Sex Discrimination Act 1975/97
The Sex Discrimination Act means that men and woman should be treated equally.
This is to be followed especially when employers recruit new staff.
People should not treat men and women differently as they are equal and this is to be followed whether it is in a workplace, or anywhere.
An example on how this links to Thorpe Park is when they recruit new staff. They could give a job to a less experienced man when they could’ve given the job to a more experienced woman.
