You have a right to be treated fairly and with respect at work. If you’re not, due to the prejudice of your employer or another member of staff, you are entitled to take action.
Discrimination in the workplace is illegal. Being treated differently because of your gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation or because you are pregnant or have a disability is totally unacceptable. When it occurs, there are procedures in law to protect you.
Any business or individual can be challenged as to why they have allowed discriminatory behaviour to occur. And ultimately, they can be asked to explain this at an employment tribunal.
Dealing with the fallout from discrimination can be tough and upsetting. At FDR Law, our specialist employment lawyers provide a friendly, sympathetic ear and will explain your rights and future options in clear, jargon-free English.
We can help you make a claim or resolve a disagreement and this doesn’t necessarily mean going to court. At every stage we will explain everything in clear, jargon-free English, so you understand all your options and the implications of taking action.
