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 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. If you think you’re experiencing discrimination at work, you need to get expert legal advice as soon as possible.

Expert advice will guide you

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 at work can be hard to understand and harder to manage. 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.
