Discrimination claims

Workplace discrimination remains an unfortunate reality for many employees. We are experts in this complex area of the law and represent employees from all walks of life and backgrounds.

In the UK, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a person because of a protected characteristic. These include the following:

  • age
  • gender reassignment
  • being married or in a civil partnership
  • being pregnant or on maternity leave
  • disability
  • race including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

Important to act quickly

It is essential if you feel that you are being discriminated against that you act quickly in order to make a claim. In most cases you need to act within 3 months less one day of the discriminatory act if you want to make a claim to an Employment Tribunal.
