Discrimination in the Night-Time Economy

Today we remind the private security industry to treat everyone with dignity and respect as set out in the Equality Act (2010).

This advice follows reports in the media of people being denied entry or ejected from venues operating in the night time economy based on their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or disability.

The first piece of guidance is for people with disabilities on working within the private security industry.  Disabled people are under-represented in the industry, and this guide provides more information on the opportunities available to them.

Guidance has also been created for door supervisors to ensure that trans customers have a safe and enjoyable time out.  This is intended to help security staff to provide a fair and safe environment, free from discrimination and prejudice.
