“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).

    I have been very pleased with the support I got from Redmans Solicitors on my case with my employer. Caroline has always helped me to put things in perspective and showed me different scenarios ultimately to help me taking the right decision. She was very professional and always available when I needed, and at the same time also emphatic which I found also really important to establish a strong relationship. Will definitely recommend!

    I had Mel Chin helping me with a settlement and she was very professional and reliable throughout my case. Mel provided me with a good understanding of what was happening and gave suggestions on routes I could take. My case was resolved and closed promptly although the opposing side were very difficult to deal with. A very big thank you to Mel and Chris.
