If you feel you have been discriminated against at work, we can advise you as to how best to deal with the situation. We can also identify your potential claims and remedies against your employer and seek the most favourable outcome for you.

There are various types of discrimination which can occur. In short, you may have a claim if you feel that you have been treated less favourably or suffered some disadvantage, if that treatment/disadvantage relates to certain “protected characteristics” which may be relevant to you.

These “protected characteristics” are age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage/civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, race, religion/belief and sexual orientation.

Discrimination is a wide and complex area of law. Should you be unsure of your position, we would encourage you to seek legal advice with us, as many situations at work can be caught under anti-discrimination laws.

We understand how distressing this can be for many employees and we always aim to deal with discrimination cases in the most sensitive way possible.
