We are highly experienced in Equality Law and can provide employers with the advice they need to prevent issues from arising, and how to manage them effectively and fairly if they do.
This area of law can be complex and even employers with the best intentions may fall foul of their responsibilities under the Equality Act if they are not properly advised.
