Discrimination Lawyers in St Helens
The main piece of legislation concerning discrimination law is the Equality Act 2010, which contains a number of ‘protected characteristics’, making it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee on the basis of any one of these characteristics.
The characteristics include: age, disability, sex, race, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief, sexual orientation etc.
If you have been discriminated against in the workplace, Hattons can take firm action against this.
The discrimination can things such as bullying and harassment, dismissal or disciplinary action due to having a protected characteristic, or being paid less than others, amongst many other situations.
We can help you with raising a formal grievance with your employer about the treatment you have received. We will communicate and try to reach a solution with your employer through using the ACAS procedure. If a resolution cannot be reached, we will see the matter through by going to an employment tribunal in order to get you the result that you want, whether that be compensation, a recommendation, or reinstatement back into your old job if you had been dismissed due to the discrimination.
