Because of one of the protected characteristics above you may have a discrimination claim against your employer and be entitled to compensation.

Our discrimination law solicitors can advise on the four types of Discrimination:

  1. Direct Discrimination: where an individual is or would be treated less favourably
  2. Indirect Discrimination: where a provision or practice applied equally to all would put an individual at a disadvantage
  3. Victimisation: where someone is treated less favourably because they have or intend to make a complaint regarding discrimination
  4. Harassment:   where unwanted conduct has the purpose or effect of violating a person’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment.
