Discrimination

It is unlawful to discriminate against a person at work in relation to their:

  • Disability
  • Race
  • Age
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Religion or belief
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Religion or belief
  • Pregnancy and maternity

If you feel that you are being discriminated against, you can take your employer to an Employment Tribunal to claim compensation. A claim should be submitted within three months of the employment ending or within three month's of the discriminatory act occurring.

Our experience of discrimination cases is wide ranging, from reasonable adjustments required to be made by employers to accommodate a worker with disability through to discrimination against gay and lesbian workers, who may also suffer bullying and homophobic abuse.

Often those facing discrimination are reluctant to raise the issue for fear that the problem will become much worse, particularly in bullying and harassment cases. We have experience of handling discrimination claims and can give you realistic and practical advice about the best course of action to take.
