We understand that discrimination can occur at any stage in the employment relationship from recruitment through to training opportunities, promotion, pay and ultimately dismissal.
If you have been treated less favourably by your employer or put at a disadvantage because you have a ‘protected characteristic’, you may have a claim for discrimination. Under the Equality Act 2010 protected characteristics include (but are not limited to) age, sex, disability, pregnancy and maternity, sexual orientation, race, and religion or belief.
Hart Brown’s experienced employment team offer specialist advice and assistance to employees in all areas of employment related discrimination.
If you think you have been discriminated against by your employer we will guide you through the legal maze of rules and regulations. Since discrimination can be a very personal matter we will deal sensitively and sympathetically with your claim.
Whilst we will take your claim all the way to the employment tribunal, if we believe that is the best way to achieve what you want, in the meantime we will use our negotiation skills, experience and expertise to try to achieve a negotiated settlement on the best possible terms.
