If you feel unfairly treated at work because of your race or ethnicity, you might have a claim for discrimination against your employer.
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.
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.
Talking to us is the first step to getting fair treatment and moving forwards. We will talk to you about your goals and what you want to achieve – and the best way we can help you. You might want an explanation from your employer, a change in their policy or a settlement to cover your losses. We can help you do that.
As you’d expect, our employment team are experts in all aspects of employment law. We can explain what your options are and help you to make decisions about what you want to do. If you want us to, we can talk to your employer for you. And if need be, we’ll start legal action for you to make sure that you get fair treatment.
When you come to Tees for help with a case of potential racial discrimination, we’ll take the time to listen to you and get a full understanding of what’s happened. Then we’ll use our knowledge of the law to explain exactly what your rights are and we’ll give you practical and straightforward advice about what you can do. We’ll give you a realistic view of how likely any legal action is to succeed. We’ll talk to you in plain English so that you’ll always understand what’s going on. We’ll work efficiently and quickly, so that you can get on with your life.
We know that talking to a solicitor about your employer can be very daunting. But if you have been the victim of racial discrimination, the sooner you talk to us, the sooner we can start to help you sort it out. Give us a call for a completely confidential chat, and we’ll tell you how we can help.
