Discrimination at work

Are you suffering discrimination at work?  Are you being treated less favourably than your colleagues?  Have you been sacked or made redundant on questionable grounds?

Under the Equality Act 2010, it is unlawful to discriminate on the grounds of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Marriage or civil partnership
  • Pregnancy or maternity

Employment tribunal claims for discrimination at work are potentially unlimited with large awards possible in the most serious cases.  Discrimination law is complicated and you may have claims under more than one category.

At Backhouse Solicitors we are experts in the law governing discrimination at work.  From our offices in Chelmsford, Essex, we have successfully won many discrimination claims in employment tribunals with awards as large as £150,000.  We offer a free 30 minute interview to understand your case and help you decide whether to take matters further.

We can assist you with bringing an employment tribunal claim and will also negotiate with your employer and their solicitors if you wish to settle out of court.  Many claims are settled this way to avoid unwanted publicity and uncapped awards, so a good solicitor can make the difference between a small settlement and a large one.  In a recent case against an international bank, our expert employment law solicitors negotiated an out of court settlement of over £450,000 for our client.

The benefits for you:

  • The right advice early on might stop the discrimination for good
  • If the discrimination can’t be stopped, or you have already been dismissed, our advice will give you the best chance of bringing a successful claim
  • A free 30 minute interview – visit our Chelmsford offices and find out if you have a good case without any financial risk
