  • Overview

    The law relating to discrimination has expanded rapidly in recent years, creating a complex web of legislation that can easily take the unwary by surprise. Currently it is unlawful to discriminate in the workplace on the grounds of:

    • Sex
    • Race
    • Disability
    • Age
    • Sexual orientation
    • Religion or belief
    • Gender reassignment
    • Marriage
    • Civil partnership
    • Pregnancy & maternity.
       

    Whilst many forms of potential discrimination are easy to identify and avoid, the full effects of modern discrimination legislation are often unseen and misunderstood.

    Our Employment team regularly advises on a wide range of issues relating to discrimination and equal treatment within the workplace. So, whether it is drafting company policies, representing you in Employment Tribunal proceedings or dealing with anything in between, our team of specialist lawyers has the knowledge and expertise required in order to ensure that your interests are best protected.

    For further information please contact one of the team.
