Our expert employment law solicitors will provide you with the advice that you need to make an informed decision about the discrimination that is occurring in your workplace. It’s not just about explaining the law – we take the time and effort to outline the steps open to you, reassuring you that you’re on the right track in addressing the problem with discrimination at work.

How our employment lawyers deal with discrimination at work claims

Our solicitors are responsive, practical, and expert in matters involving discrimination at work. Whether the matter relates to race discrimination, age discrimination, disability discrimination, or any other form of discrimination, we can both advise you on your legal position and on how to address the matter with your employer.

There are a number of different types of discrimination that occur in the workplace and our advice to you on your rights and how to tackle the situation will differ depending upon the type of discrimination involved. Direct discrimination involves employees of your employer treating you less favourably than other employees because of your race, age, disability etc. This type of discrimination is normally quite obvious and it is relatively simple to suggest steps that can be taken to address the situation (such as a formal written grievance, a serious ‘chat’ with your line manager, or a letter from a firm of solicitors regarding the discriminatory conduct). Indirect discrimination, on the other hand, is normally more subtle and can be harder to address.

There are a number of types of “protected characteristic”, including:

  • Age (“age discrimination”)
  • Sex (“sex discrimination”)
  • Race – nationality, national origin, ethnicity, ethnic origin, and skin color (“race discrimination”)
  • Disability (“disability discrimination”)
  • Maternity and pregnancy (“maternity & pregnancy discrimination”)
  • Marriage and civil partnership (“marriage & civil partnership discrimination”)
  • Gender orientation (“gender orientation discrimination”)
  • Sexual orientation (“sexual orientation discrimination”)

Our advice to clients is that trying to settle an issue relating to discrimination at work prior to the issue of an ET1 claim is always preferable. If the matter were to be settled prior to the issue of proceedings then this would normally involve a compromise agreement. However, if it is not possible to settle the case prior to the limitation date of the incident of discrimination then we would issue “protective” proceedings to stop you from losing the ability to enforce your rights.
