Religion & Belief Discrimination Solicitors

Josiah Hincks Solicitors can help you in claims for discrimination on the grounds of Religion or Belief. Our discrimination solicitors can help with any religion & belief discrimination, whether linked to unfair dismissal or any other Employment Law and Employment Tribunal claim.

Examples of discrimination based on a persons religion and belief include:

  • Name calling
  • Offensive comments
  • Being dismissed because of a belief or religion
  • Being chosen for redundancy because of a belief or religion
  • Not being chosen for a job role or promotion because of a belief or religion
  • Being subjected to inappropriate behaviour (this will also be classified as harassment).

This section of the law covers:

  • Another persons religion or belief
  • A perception of a persons religion or belief, whether correct or not
  • A persons genuine philosophical belief

The factors that an employment tribunal would consider when deciding whether something is a religion or belief is:

  • Is the belief is genuinely held?
  • Is it a belief and not an opinion?
  • Is the belief is a substantial part of a persons life and behaviour?
  • Does it reach a certain level of cohesion, importance and seriousness?
  • Is the belief compatible with human dignity and a persons fundamental rights?

The law in this area doesn’t cover patriotism.
