Race discrimination claims – legal support for employers

Under the Equality Act, it is unlawful to treat employees or prospective employees less favourably because of their race. The Act also protects workers from harassment or victimisation because of their race.

Proper employment procedures and staff training help protect your business against race discrimination claims. Without well-written employment policies, your business may be at risk of potential discrimination claims. The law applies to all stages of the employment relationship, including:

  • The recruitment and selection process
  • Terms and conditions of employment
  • Training 
  • Promotions, transfers and dismissals.

Our specialist employment solicitors provide legal advice on every aspect of race discrimination, including:

  • How to manage a diverse workforce
  • How to deal with a race discrimination claim
  • How to minimise your exposure to risk of a race discrimination claim.

Race discrimination is a complex area, and mistakes can cause lasting damage to your business. Specialist legal support can help your business avoid costly mistakes – including financial penalties, or damage to your businesses reputation. Our employment law solicitors support and guide businesses through complex race discrimination claims, and actively work to reduce potential risks to your business. Our priority is to minimise the risk of a claim being made, but our specialists can also step in in situations where businesses are facing a discrimination claim.
