Discrimination against employees is now covered by the Equality Act 2010.
Discrimination law has long applied to both racial discrimination and sex discrimination. These include discrimination on the grounds of colour or ethnic origin, gender, marital status (including civil partnership), pregnancy or childbirth.
More recently, discrimination law has been extended to include 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 every 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 other third parties, such as suppliers, clients or customers, our employment lawyers can asses the evidence and investigate your claim in full.
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.
