Discrimination at work

You don’t have to put up with discrimination at work. Not only is it stressful, it’s illegal – and we can show you how to make it stop.

Advice on discrimination at work

Discrimination at work can be very distressing. If you think you’re experiencing discrimination at work, you need to get expert legal advice as soon as possible. At Tees, we'll help you make sense of the situation, explain the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and show you a clear path towards resolving it. Our solicitors are experts in employment law, and we regularly deal with complex discrimination cases and claims. We’ve worked on both sides of the fence, so we’ve heard all the arguments your employer is likely to make. We can anticipate what will happen next and guide you accordingly. All our advice will be focused on finding a quick and efficient resolution that works for you. 

Examples of discrimination at work

It’s unlawful for an employer to treat an employee less favourably than another based on:

  • sex, race and religion
  • sexual orientation or gender reassignment
  • marriage or civil partnership
  • pregnancy or maternity leave
  • disability
  • age (unless objectively justified).

Discrimination in the workplace can be direct, such as treating someone differently simply because of their religion. It can also be indirect, such as setting job criteria that more men than women can meet.
