Discrimination and Equality Advice

Discrimination at work continues to be one of the fastest moving and difficult areas of employment law. It has expanded rapidly in recent years, creating a complex web of legislation and case law that can easily trap the unwary.

It is currently unlawful to discriminate in the workplace on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation.

for no obligation advice on discrimination and equality issues.

How to deal with equality and discrimination

The right not to be discriminated against applies from day one of someone's employment, to the recruitment process, terms of employment and even after someone has left.

We will help you comply with the new mandatory gender pay gap reporting requirements.

Apart from it making good business sense to treat all your workers fairly and considerately, the cost of discriminating against an employee - even inadvertently could have a disastrous effect on your business. Damages for discrimination claims are uncapped - the average award in a Tribunal for race or disability discrimination is over £17,000. Sex discrimination awards average at £23,500.

Some forms of direct discrimination are easier to identify and avoid. Less obvious is indirect discrimination which might impact on pay, working hours, benefits, holidays, redundancy selection, as well as dress codes. These often go unnoticed at first and are easily misunderstood. Making the wrong decision can be very costly.
