Discrimination

There are many different types of discrimination and not all discrimination is unlawful however in the context of employment tribunal cases many claims arise as a result of less favourable treatment on the grounds of sex, age, race, sexual orientation, or religion or belief although these ‘protected characteristics’ are not exhaustive and the Equality Act 2010 provides protection to a much wider group of people in many different circumstances.

Discrimination claims do not require a minimum length of service and the discrimination can be direct, indirect, or by association. The law also imposes obligations upon employers to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ where an employee is disabled for example.

The geographical reach of our network of specialist barristers is such that, subject to availability, we can offer representation at every Tribunal and court in England, Scotland and Wales.
