Can I make a discrimination claim?
Employees must be able to show that their employer has acted to
their detriment for an unlawful, discriminatory reason. Employees
can make a discrimination claim provided they have been dismissed,
demoted, disadvantaged or treated badly at work because of
- disability or impairment;
- family or carer's responsibilities;
- union or industrial activity;
- sexual orientation; or
- making a complaint or inquiry about their employment.
What may I be entitled to?
If an employee is successful in a discrimination claim, they can
seek compensation for lost wages, pain, suffering, hurt and
distress. In some cases, penalties and injunctions may be imposed.
There is a vast number of workplace discrimination cases that have
been resolved without the need to attend Court.
If you believe you have been discriminated against in the
workplace, you should contact Andersons Solicitors on 8238 6666 to
