Racial discrimination

If you feel unfairly treated at work because of your race or ethnicity, you might have a claim for discrimination against your employer.

Race discrimination claims at work

The Equality Act 2010, like the Race Relations Act before it, makes it unlawful for employers to treat you differently because of your race. This applies to all aspects of the working relationship from recruitment, through training and promotion to dismissal and even after you leave your job. 

What are my options if I feel unfairly treated at work because of my race?

If you think your employer is discriminating against you because of your race, talk to our specialist discrimination law solicitors. Our specialist employment law team will tell you if you have a claim, and the best way to move forward. Our priority is to ensure you’re being treated fairly, and to assert your worker’s rights.
