Discrimination law

The laws relating to discrimination against employees are contained in the Equality Act 2010. 

Discrimination grounds

From its beginnings in the coverage of complaints related to racial discrimination and sex discrimination, discrimination law has been extended and today covers: age discrimination, discrimination against disabled people both in terms of employment and as customers. Discrimination on the grounds of an employee’s religious or philosophical beliefs is also illegal, as is discrimination against those undergoing gender reassignment.

Any employment stage

Discrimination can occur at any stage of your employment, for example, during your recruitment process, selection for training or promotion, applying disciplinary procedures, dismissal and redundancy.

If you feel you have been discriminated against at work or treated less favourably, whether by your employer or any third parties, such as suppliers, clients or customers, our employment lawyers can asses the evidence and investigate your claim in full.

Discrimination claim

No form of harassment, victimisation or bullying should be tolerated in the workplace and if you are thinking about making a discrimination claim, we recommend that you seek expert legal advice from a member of our employment law team as soon as possible.
