Discrimination at work can take many forms and the laws governing discrimination and equality are more complex now than ever before. There are a number of ‘protected characteristics’ in respect of which an employer cannot discriminate against in the workplace, including age, sex, disability, marital status, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or beliefs, sexual orientation, and gender reassignment. This protection extends to not only employees, but also workers, job applicants and third parties.


The Lamb Brooks Employment Law Department understands the full breadth of this complex area of law and the sensitivities that are involved. Our employee rights solicitors can explain the law around discrimination and equality.


Our experts can advise you as to the strength of your claim and the level of compensation that you may expect to receive if you are successful. It is worth bearing in mind that discrimination compensation in the employment tribunal is unlimited and can include a sum for injury to feelings, personal injury and interest.


There are very short time limits for bringing a discrimination claim in the employment tribunal, so if you think that you may have a claim call our Employment Law Department located in Basingstoke, Hampshire today.
