At Hill & Abbott Solicitors our Employment Team understands the difficulties that can often be faced by both employee and the employer.
As an employee you have the right to be protected from discrimination and if you feel that you have been discriminated against the situation can be potentially serious for both sides. Discrimination legislation is complex and, in theory, without limit on the amount that can be awarded to a successful claimant not to mention the enormous risk employers face with significant financial exposure.
Discriminatory treatment can be very traumatic for both employers and can take the form in any number of ways including:
- sexual orientation,
- religion and belief,
- civil partnerships
- or age
Our team can advise both employers and employees on discrimination law.
