If you have concerns about the treatment you have received from the Ministry of Defence as your employer or by your colleagues in the armed forces, then our team of employment law solicitors can help you.
Hodge Jones and Allen regularly represent employees who have suffered bullying, harassment and discrimination, and we are renowned for our pioneering work defending the rights of military personnel. Our employment solicitors can help protect you from unfair treatment and challenge stressful situations, whilst focusing on your best interests and future career prospects in the military.
Bullying and harassment can have a devastating impact on your morale, self-confidence and mental health. But you don’t need to put up with it – we can help you stand up for your rights.
The Equality Act 2010 applies to both civilian and military employers. Harassment is defined by the Act as offensive conduct directed at employees on certain protected grounds including their race, religion or religious belief, sex or sexual orientation. Military employers also have a legal duty to ensure their civilian and military personnel are protected from discrimination on these grounds.
Bullying is characterised by intimidating, malicious or insulting behaviour which undermines or humiliates an employee.
The law also allows you to complain and take legal action against any kind of victimisation. We will work with you to understand your objectives and advise on the best way forward to achieve the outcome you need. This might be through informal discussion with those responsible for your employment in the military or, if all else fails, more robust legal action to secure compensation, apologies and changes in working practice to prevent further incidents in future.
While we have a strong record in winning maximum compensation, we know that for many of our clients, ending unfair practices in the military and holding those responsible to account is just as important. Our sympathetic lawyers will fight your corner and we can mediate and negotiate on your behalf to reach the best possible outcome. We go out of our way to ensure our clients feel supported and advised every step of the way.
