Discrimination issues including sex, race and whistleblowing matters
Most employers will have to deal with a grievance from a member of staff at some point.
If an employee feels that they have been discriminated against, the situation can be potentially serious.
Discrimination legislation is complex and, without a limit on the amount that can be awarded to a successful claimant, employers risk facing significant financial loss and damage to their reputation.
Whistleblowing claims, which are similar to discrimination claims and have unlimited compensation as well, also need a careful approach.
Our team of employment law specialists advise employers on discrimination law, whether it is discrimination on the grounds of race, sex, disability, sexual orientation, religion and belief, or age.
We provide employers with the advice required to reduce the risk of claims, including help with providing appropriate policies for staff handbooks and/or contracts.
