Discrimination & Equality

We live in an increasingly diverse and dynamic society, which means that discrimination law continues to be a key issue for businesses. It is therefore important for employers to keep up to date with equality law.


At present, it is illegal to discriminate on the grounds of age, sex, disability, marital status, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, and gender reassignment.


The Lamb Brooks Employment Lawyers are on hand to advise you as to how to avoid discrimination arising in the workplace, ensuring you have robust policies in place, your managers are adequately trained and are able to effectively resolve discrimination grievances in line with best practice.


If you have concerns regarding discrimination or have received a complaint from an employee or worker, contact our Employment Department today for advice.

"Extremely thorough and at the same time very efficient. Polite, friendly, put me at my ease and gave me complete confidence that I was in the right hands from the first handshake till completion. Understood my requirements and helped me get to where i needed to be without any fuss whatsoever. This was the first time I had cause to meet with a solicitor in over 20 years and it was an absolute pleasure from start to finish."
