Discrimination Claims

Suffering discrimination is unacceptable and there is legislation to guard against it. We can help you stand up for your rights.

Our skilled employment lawyers use their in-depth knowledge of the Equality Act 2010 to win justice for our clients. The Act was brought in to strengthen existing legislation, so that individuals do not suffer less favourable treatment on protected grounds. Nobody should be treated differently due to their:

  • Gender
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy
  • Marital status

Employers have a legal duty to ensure workers are protected from discrimination on these grounds and also to protect employees from discrimination from their colleagues. Discrimination can range from direct discriminatory treatment to cases where individuals lose out through a company policy such as a dress code. Cases of discrimination may also be compounded by workplace bullying and harassment.

Our sympathetic lawyers will fight your corner and we can mediate and negotiate on your behalf to reach the best possible outcome. If the case proceeds to litigation, we can skillfully guide you through any hearings or tribunals. While we have a strong record in winning maximum compensation on discrimination claims, we know that for many of our clients, ending unfair practices in the workplace and holding employers to account is just as important.

At Hodge Jones & Allen, we are proud of our reputation for tenaciously upholding the rights of individuals in the face of even the largest, most powerful institutions. We also act for charities and organisations representing disadvantaged groups. Whatever the size or nature of the case, we bring the same personal, professional approach.
