“Sexual orientation discrimination at work can be extremely stressful for employees and can adversely affect careers. Our employment lawyers offer advice on the law and your options”

Experts in Sexual Orientation Discrimination Law

If you believe you have been treated less favourably on the grounds of your age then please contact one of our solicitors for advice.

The Equality Act 2010 (“EA 2010″) protects a wide range of workers, including employees, from being discriminated against in a wide range of situations (including, for example, recruitment, training and dismissal).

Your employer is prohibited from:

  1. Treating you less favourably because of your sexual orientation without a good reason (direct discrimination)
  2. Applying a neutral rule – Provision, Criterion or Practice (PCP) – to you that would put workers of the same sexual orientation as you at a disadvantage as compared to other workers not of the same age (indirect discrimination)
  3. Subjecting you to harassment because of your sexual orientation
  4. Victimising you because you intend to or have undertaken a complaint relating to discrimination because of your sexual orientation complaint

Your employer will be vicariously liable if you are discriminated against or victimised by another employee because of your sexual orientation. Your employer will also be liable if you are harassed by a third party because of your sexual orientation, the harassment took place on two or more occasions, your employer knew of the harassment and failed to take reasonably practicable steps to prevent the harassment. The offending employee or third party may also be liable.

If you were to be successful in a sexual orientation discrimination complaint to the Employment Tribunal then depending on the circumstances you may be awarded a sum in compensation (including compensation for injury to feelings). The Tribunal can also make a declaration as to the rights of both parties and make an appropriate recommendation (including reinstatement, if applicable, or an apology).

Very prompt response and I could not fault the service. My solicitor listened carefully to the details of my case and I felt very confident in the advice I was offered. All emails and work done on my behalf with my former employer was of the highest standard and Redmans helped take a lot of the stress out of the situation for me.

I requested Redmans services on a redundancy case. Both Chris and Rana were great, thoughtful, very professional and responded quickly. They were very clear throughout the entire process, regarding the process and my options and I couldn't feel I had better legal advice for my case. Overall excellent service and I would certainly recommend and use their services again.
