Tees represents and supports employers through every aspect of sexual discrimination claims. Our solicitors provide policies, procedures and legal representation.
Under the Equality Act, it is unlawful to treat employees/workers or prospective employees/workers less favourably because of their sex. The Act also protects people from harassment or victimisation because of their sex.
The Act applies to discrimination against both men and women.
Tees can advise on any aspect of sexual discrimination at work. This is a complex area of the law; without specialist advice, your business may be exposed to risk of sexual discrimination claims from employees and workers. Proper employment procedures and staff training help protect your business against sexual discrimination claims.
In some cases, there is a ‘genuine occupational requirement’ for businesses to implement employment policies which may seem discriminatory. For example, women to work in a female changing room. Policies of this nature, however necessary, can represent a risk to your business – so it’s important to take legal advice from the start. Our employment law specialists can help.
At Tees we have significant experience in dealing with all types of sexual discrimination cases. We will guide you through everything you need to ensure your business is fully compliant with its obligations to employees and workers under the Equality Act. There are a number of ways we can help, including:
