Discrimination claims can be very difficult to handle: only certain kinds of conduct can be deemed to be discriminatory. Furthermore the conduct must be of a certain degree before there can be a potential legal action. We are experts in the field of employment law with particular knowledge of the law on discrimination. If you are concerned that your organisation may become vulnerable to a discrimination claim.
Under the Equality Act, there are certain characteristics of people which cannot be used to treat you unfairly:
- Gender (including gender-reassignment)
- Marriage/civil partnership
- Sexual Orientation.
Each of these characteristics are deemed ‘protected characteristics’. If an employer takes any action that is unfair, and it relates to any of the characteristics listed above, then this may give rise to a discrimination claim.
