    Disciplinary, grievance, misconduct, racism, harassment, discrimination at work:  advice & representation: tribunal claims

    Discrimination laws cover all areas of work including the terms and conditions in a contract of employment, behaviour and conduct during employment, treatment on returning from maternity or sick leave and discrimination at events outside of the workplace such as an office social. They also cover unfair dismissal and can be relevant to matters arising after termination of employment, such as references given by a previous employer which make remarks amounting to discrimination.

    Employees and directors have many rights protecting them against discrimination. Gender discrimination for example protects the right not to be discriminated against on the basis of gender and the right of women to equal pay for like work or work of equal value to work completed by men.

    The rights available to employees to protect them from discrimination cover basics such as pay, bonuses, salaries, holiday entitlement, but also cover rights to receive equal training and support as and the right to be considered equally for promotion, as well as the right not to be harassed or bullied.

    An employer can be held responsible for discrimination by its employees. It may also be liable for discrimination by an external body such as an employment agency.

    As specialists in all employment discrimination claims, we are capable of handling all types of discrimination claims, including tricky cases where the discrimination is on the basis of more than one personal trait. It is not always just a question of race discrimination for example. There might also be issues of gender or age discrimination to consider.

    The feeling that you are being treated unfairly at work can be distressing. Consulting experienced discrimination solicitors will at least allow you access to sympathetic support and an understanding of where you stand under employment discrimination law.

    It’s prudent to consultant a discrimination lawyer sooner rather than later if you intend to bring a claim, as time limits apply. Discrimination cases can also be complex and so it is best to have an expert input on the process of proving your case early on.

    If an employment tribunal finds in favour of your discrimination claim you may be awarded damages for loss of earnings and injury to feelings.
