If you feel that you may have a claim for workplace discrimination of any description, be it on the grounds of age, race, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion or disability, an employment law solicitor will be able to advise you of your rights and may be able to assist you with making a claim against your employer. To speak to an employment law solicitor at Farleys, call 0333 331 4031 or email us  and a member of our employment team will respond to your enquiry.


What is workplace discrimination?

The most commonly encountered forms of workplace discrimination are:
Racial discrimination
Age discrimination
Sexual discrimination
Sexual orientation discrimination
Disability discrimination
Religion or belief discrimination

Does a claim depend on length of service?

Unlike some other forms of employment related claims, discrimination claims are not contingent on length of service and can even be brought during the recruitment process. Discrimination can be defined as ‘direct’, ‘indirect’ or can present itself in the form of ‘harassment’.
