Regardless of how it manifests, it is extremely distressing to feel that you are on the receiving end of discrimination at work. However, there are laws to protect employees from discrimination and bullying in the workplace.
Discrimination can be on grounds of:
- Sexual orientation
- Marital status
Our team of highly experienced, specialist Employment solicitors can advise you of your legal rights and if necessary help you in making a claim against your employer. We have a wealth of experience in discrimination law, routinely acting for employees and employers in complex cases relating to discrimination, harassment and equality. As such we have real insight into the strategies and tactics on both sides, so we can keep you ahead of the game.
Employees at all levels of seniority and from all walks of life come to us when they believe they have been discriminated against, often in terms of selection for redundancy or payments such as bonus awards or even personal treatment in the form of bullying / harassment by colleagues.
As experts in this complex field of law we apply our technical knowledge and wide experience to the particular circumstances of your case. We aim to provide pragmatic, strategic and commercially focused advice to help you to secure the right outcome.
Typically neither side wishes to end up in an Employment Tribunal and cases can be settled in other ways. However, when this is not possible, we are robust in representing clients’ interests to achieve the best outcome possible.
