Our Employment Law solicitors are recognised nationally as leaders for providing legal advice to employees on equality and discrimination matters. We fight for the rights of individuals to be treated equally in the workplace.
Discrimination can manifest in a range of forms such as directly discriminatory actions, discriminatory policies, harassment from managers or fellow employees, and victimisation for raising allegations of discrimination. Our employment lawyers are noted for our ability to guide our clients through this complicated area of law.
We assist individuals who have experienced workplace discrimination against any of the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010:
- Gender reassignment
- Marriage and civil partnership
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Religion and philosophical belief
- Sex (gender)
- Sexual orientation
We understand that discrimination cases are often highly sensitive and require expert handling from the outset in order to maximise our clients’ prospects of a successful outcome. We have an outstanding record in bringing successful claims, whether reaching favourable settlement agreements prior to the hearing or winning cases at trial.
As social attitudes and norms change, the forms of discrimination which individuals face at work also evolves and it is important that this is reflected in discrimination law. Our expert employment law solicitors assist on complex and often high-profile discrimination cases, concerning new and niche areas of discrimination and setting new legal principles, to ensure workers are adequately protected from all forms of discrimination in the workplace.
If you have experienced workplace discrimination it is important to act quickly. Failing to seek legal advice at your earliest opportunity can have significant consequences on potential claims.
