Discrimination

Workplace discrimination means being treated less favourably than someone else because of a protected characteristic as defined in the Equality Act 2010 (age, gender, race, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy or maternity, gender reassignment, religious beliefs, disability).

Workplace discrimination can refer to a number of ways that an employer may treat someone unfairly based on these characteristics including: direct; indirect; failure to make adjustments; discrimination arising from disability; harassment; victimisation.

If you believe you are a victim of workplace discrimination, our expert employment solicitors can review your case and explain your legal rights in a straight forward and sympathetic way. To speak to a member of the employment team call 0191 281 6151 or email nsmith@mincoffs.co.uk
