Discrimination

Our specialist employment solicitors can advise on all areas of discrimination, including on the main grounds of

  • sex
  • race
  • disability
  • sexual orientation
  • religion or belief
  • age
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity

We can also provide you with support to facilitate the drafting, monitoring and enforcement of these policies.

Our specialist employment solicitors deal with discrimination, equal pay and harassment claims.  We regularly represent clients at the Employment Tribunal and can advise on and facilitate settlements where appropriate.

What are the risks?

A discrimination claim against an employer can be particularly concerning in terms of reputation but there is also the risk of considerable awards being made which are currently uncapped. There is no minimum length of employment service required to bring a discrimination claim. In fact, discrimination claims have succeeded in cases where the discrimination has occurred as part of the recruitment process and where the claimant was not even employed by the business.

It is essential for employers to put in place equal opportunities policies and to ensure that they are properly implemented.
