(1) A person (“the discriminator”) discriminates by victimisation against another person (“the person victimised”) in any circumstances relevant for the purposes of any provision of this Act if he treats the person victimised less favourably than in those circumstances he treats or would treat other persons, and does so by reason that the person victimised has—
(a) brought proceedings against the discriminator or any other person under this Act, or any relevant law;
(b) given evidence or information in connection with proceedings brought by any person against the discriminator or any other person under this Act, or any relevant law;
(c) otherwise done anything under or by reference to this Act, or any relevant law, in relation to the discriminator or any other person; or
(d) alleged that the discriminator or any other person has committed an act, which (whether or not the allegation so states) would amount to a contravention of this Act, or any relevant law, or by reason that the discriminator knows the person victimised intends to do any of those things referred to in paragraphs (a) to (d), or suspects the person victimised has done, or intends to do, any of them.
(2) Subsection (1) does not apply to treatment of a person by reason of any allegation made by him, if the allegation was false and not made in good faith.
