Type of Discrimination
Discrimination against someone on the grounds of a particular characteristic is not something that employers should allow to take place.
Although no matter how hard they try, discrimination in the workplace can occur in different ways, with some of the most common being discrimination on the grounds of:
- Sexual Orientation
Our employment solicitors understand how best to handle discrimination claims, and have expert knowledge in the law relating to your circumstance. We are specialist employment law solicitors and therefore can provide you with clear legal advice, plus the support and guidance at your difficult time.
Discrimination claims can often be resolved directly with your employer with us acting on your behalf, ensuring your interests are protected at all times.
Discrimination is difficult to prove. Overtly discriminatory behaviour for example being subject to a racist, ageist or sexist remark is no longer common. Subtle and overt discrimination is more common, for example a black employee being passed over for promotion when white colleagues with less skill or experience are promoted . We understand this.
You need to be able to show that you have been treated less favourably than a colleague and the reason for that treatment relates to a protected characteristic.
Employment Tribunal claims need carefully setting out. Here’s where we can help. We have decades of experience in discrimination cases dating back to 1992. We have taken cases to court that have achieved widespread publicity, including the underwear model who was sexually harassed whilst on location shoot with BHS. Read further details here.
We want to help you right a wrong. We can do this by representing you bringing a claim to Employment Tribunal, including representing you injudicial or ACAS mediation or conciliation..
No form of discrimination is acceptable and suffering from discrimination is undoubtedly an emotional and stressful time.
