Complying with discrimination laws is a legal duty for businesses. Tees will ensure your business fulfils its legal obligations, so you’re protected against legal claims.

Jonathan Insley, Chelmsford

Our employment law team includes specialists in discrimination law. We can help you put the right policies in place to ensure your business is compliant, and review your existing policies. We can also assist you if a discrimination claim has been made against your business. 

Expert employment law advice for businesses

Discrimination in the workplace can take many forms. The Equality Act 2010 identified ‘protected characteristics’ and made it illegal to discriminate against people based on these. The protected characteristics are:

  • Age 
  • Sex 
  • Race 
  • Sexual orientation
  • Marriage or Civil Partnership 
  • Religion or belief
  • Disability 
  • Gender reassignment
  • Pregnancy or Maternity Leave.

We can help you act quickly and strategically if an employee makes a discrimination claim against your business. At Tees, we understand the how a discrimination claim can affect your business, so we’ll work with you to manage the situation. We will advise you on the best course of action to take, so you can minimise potential risks.

If you need legal advice regarding a discrimination issue or claim, call our employment law solicitors on 0800 0131165.
