Discrimination

Discrimination

For a worker finding themselves on the receiving end of discriminatory treatment, the experience can be very distressing. Discrimination in the workplace involves being treated less favourably than others because of a “protected characteristic” such as:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Maternity or pregnancy
  • Marriage or civil partnership
  • Race
  • Religion or beliefs
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender reassignment

The legal safeguards not to be discriminated against apply to all stages of employment including recruitment, promotion and terminations.

We will review your case and advise you on its merits. If your claim succeeds, you could receive compensation for losses you have suffered.

Discrimination is a challenging area of law. At Sherrards you will benefit from the counsel of a specialist employment lawyer who understands the stresses you are likely to be under.

We will be happy to steer you through each stage of the legal process, providing open, practical, cost-effective advice in plain English. We will support you through the process and offer choices, and our service is 100% confidential.
