Discrimination At Work

Discrimination At Work

Discrimination comes in many different forms and in an employment context is covered by the Equality Act 2010. This covers things like disability, sex, age, sexual orientation and religious or other beliefs.

We have an expert understanding and knowledge of the law in this area including the relevant codes of practice and statutory guidance which employment tribunals tend to refer to when deciding discrimination cases.

If you have suffered discrimination at work, you can sue your employer and individuals (managers and colleagues). 

Your employer is potentially vicariously liable for the acts of its employees, but any business can take steps to limit its exposure to claims by promoting and encouraging equality and diversity.

Discrimination at work can occur in every aspect of any employment relationship; including recruitment, promotion, benefits packages and termination.

We understand that if you have been subjected to any form of discrimination at work, you will understandably be feeling upset and hurt. We can provide you with all the emotional and practical support you need to help you win compensation.
