Acting for an employer in response to a religious discrimination claim

An employee of our client unsuccessfully applied for a vacancy, which would have been a promotion for him.  In response he, a long standing employee, raised a number of complaints alleging that over a number of years he and other employees had been denied a promotion and workplace opportunities because of religion.

The claim was made through our client’s grievance procedure, then their grievance procedure appeals process; then, following this, an employment tribunal claim. We helped our client thoroughly investigate the claim and demonstrate that this investigation showed the claim to have no substance.  We also aided in the conducting of a demonstrably impartial grievance appeal.

The strength of our evidence of a proper investigation into the allegations and their lack of substance resulted in the claimant employee withdrawing his claim before any employment tribunal hearing took place.
