Discrimination in the workplace

Being treated unfairly is unpleasant and upsetting. If that is because of a prejudice someone holds, QualitySolicitors Knight Polson will support you to gain fair treatment or make a claim.

We can advise you on all types of discrimination including bullying, harassment and victimisation.

Discrimination is illegal, more than that it is abhorrent. Being treated differently because of a "protected characteristic" is totally unacceptable.

The nine "protected characteristics" are:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race/colour/nationality/ethnicity
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender reassignment

When discrimination occurs, there are procedures to challenge it. Any business or individual can be challenged as to why they allowed discriminatory behaviour to occur. And ultimately, they can be asked to explain this to a court called an Employment Tribunal. They could also end up paying you compensation for loss of earnings and for the manner in which you have been treated.

Discrimination is upsetting. Dealing with the fallout can be tough. Our employment lawyer can help you make a claim or resolve a disagreement. Before proceeding to court, there are other procedures to explore with you. Our employment lawyer can explain what discrimination is, how the law protects you and what options you have. We are clear about the likely costs, timescales and what outcomes may be achievable. Everything is explained without legal jargon.
