Increasing people are fighting it and demanding fair treatment.

Helping you Fight Discrimination at Work

People can find themselves discriminated against in the workplace for a variety of reasons including:

  • Age Discrimination
  • Sex Discrimination
  • Racial Discrimination
  • Disability Discrimination
  • Sexual orientation discrimination
  • Religion or belief discrimination

What is Discrimination?

Discrimination means treating some people differently from others. It isn’t always unlawful. But you can’t be discriminated against because of your…

  • Gender
  • Marital Status
  • Gender Reassignment
  • Pregnancy (see Pregnancy-Related Dismissal)
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Disability
  • Race
  • Colour
  • Ethnic Background
  • Nationality
  • Religion Or Belief
  • Age

Equal opportunities laws try to ensure that people are employed, paid, trained and promoted only because of their skills and abilities.

Discrimination at work occurs when an employer treats one employee less favourably than others. It could be a female employee being paid less than a male colleague for doing the same job, or an employee from an ethnic minority being refused the same opportunities offered to his/her white colleagues.

If you think you have been discriminated against, you may need expert advice to deal with it – and that’s where Stonehewer Moss Solicitors can help you.
