    Discrimination in the workplace & employment law

    We have a track record of success in cases of workplace discrimination, including direct, indirect, harassment, victimisation and disability related failure to make reasonable adjustments.

    Our team of legal experts will work with you to identify the applicable type of discrimination to your situation and the options available to you as an employee or former employee.

    Types of discrimination at work

    Unfavourable treatment by an employer is against the law if it is based on one of the following 'protected characteristics':

    Age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

    How our employment lawyers can help:

    • Give you a clear view of the best way forward
    • Consider whether you have a discrimination claim and give you an honest opinion on your chance of succeeding
    • Help you pursue a claim or negotiate a fair and amicable exit
    • Help you to tackle the situation and support you in the process.

    Client example

    An employee had been bullied and harassed by her manager. She had raised a grievance and was suspended while it was investigated. She discovered that an email had been sent round work advising that she had left the business. We sought to negotiate with the company to compensate her for what was a clear case of unfair dismissal but they proved evasive. We issued proceedings and settled her claim within a few days of issuing.
