We’d like to think that discrimination no longer happens in the workplace but unfortunately, it simply isn’t true. So when it does happen, Hatton James Legal are here for you. .
What counts as discrimination?
As an employee, you are automatically protected from discrimination under the 2010 Equality Act. The act was put into place to safeguard people from being discriminated against in the workplace and in wider society too. You are protected from direct and indirect discrimination under this act which details the ways in which it is unlawful to treat someone.
It is against the law to discriminate against any employee based on their protected characteristics. These include:
• Sexual orientation
• Gender reassignment
If you feel you have been treated differently for any of these reasons, you may be able to file a discrimination claim against your employer. You will need to provide proof to support your claim, and we will let you know how to find what you need. We deal with all discrimination claims sensitively and thoughtfully as we know how upsetting it can be. It is a complex area that’s always evolving, and we make sure we’re up to date with all the latest information.
With Hatton James Legal, your discrimination claim will be in good hands. We will find the best way to deal with the situation, and get everything sorted as quickly as possible. You will receive expert advice, professional representation, and a warm welcome.
