“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).

Prompt efficient service. Hourly, and part thereof, billing got a bit stressful at times - as opposed to flat fee - made me think twice about sending an email or making a quick call when I had a query because it would have eaten up minutes from my budget. But happy with the legal service I received overall and would recommend.

Chris Hadrill has provided a truly wonderful service and was willing to lend his support and expertise at a time when other solicitors, only wanted to discuss their fees! A clear thinking and down to earth professional, Chris can be trusted to listen carefully to your matter, cut through the fog, and advise you on the best (and most realistic) way forward, saving you time, money and heartache. It will be helpful if you first get your ducks in a row in terms of documents / evidence etc. and then contact Chris, (that’s what we did) as this will help your matter to be dealt with faster. The more organised and together you are the more successful you will be. You'll be fine with Chris, I highly recommend him. Good luck!

I was generally impressed with the fast turn around, efficiency, responsiveness, and consideration of circumstances. I needed a couple of areas of advice quickly and with Redmans help was able to get to a conclusion quickly and with minimum stress. They were friendly and professional throughout - I'd use them again.
