Employment Services. Office workers on escalators



At some stage most employers will have to deal with a complaint of grievance from a member of staff.

If an employee feels that they have been discriminated against, the situation can be potentially serious. Discrimination legislation is complex and, in theory, without limit on the amount that can be awarded to a successful claimant, employers risk facing significant financial exposure.

For an individual who finds themselves on the receiving end of discriminatory treatment, the experience can be very traumatic.

Our team of specialists advise both employers and employees on discrimination law, whether it is discrimination on the grounds of race, sex, disability, sexual orientation, religion and belief, or age. We provide employers with the advice required to reduce the risk of claims, including help with providing appropriate policies for staff handbooks or contracts.

We provide proactive, straightforward, commercial advice in plain English.

If you require more information, or have any questions about discrimination, please email Birketts’ Employment Law Team.

Always provides pragmatic and practical advice, explained in straightforward terms. The team always have someone available if advice is needed at short notice. I would highly recommend their services.
