It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee in the terms of employment; in the opportunities for promotion, transfer, training or any benefit; by dismissing the employee; or by subjecting the employee to any other detriment.
Discrimination is a complex area of law. We advise on a wide range of discrimination issues, including direct discrimination, indirect discrimination, victimisation, disability discrimination arising from the failure to make reasonable adjustments, and harassment.
We advise employers and employees not only regarding discrimination claims in the employment tribunal, but also across a wide range of topics where discrimination law can apply, including contractual terms, employment policies and procedures, sick pay entitlement and performance related pay and benefits.
