Discrimination in the workplace can occur in different ways, with some of the most common being discrimination on the grounds of sex, disability, race, age, or pregnancy.
No form of discrimination is acceptable and suffering from discrimination is undoubtedly an emotional and frustrating time in your life. Discrimination against someone on the grounds of a particular protected characteristic is not something that employers should allow to take place.
Our solicitors understand how best to handle discrimination claims for you and provide you with the relevant 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. If this option does not obtain a suitable outcome for you, we can also represent you in mediation, either directly with your employer, or with the assistance of the Employment Tribunal.
This does not involve a full Tribunal Hearing and aims to seek resolution prior to that stage. If matters do require to proceed to a Tribunal Hearing, our expertise in pursuing Tribunal claims for employees will ensure we will guide you through the process as painlessly as possible whilst providing you with robust representation.
We can assess your case for a fixed fee of £300 plus VAT and provide you with our views and recommendations.
