Experiencing discrimination in the workplace is unpleasant and upsetting, whether it be through age, religion, race or gender. Eldridges’ experienced team works toward the best outcome for employees suffering from day to day verbal bullying.
Discrimination in the workplace occurs when a worker is treated less favourably than others. This can be due to one or more of a range of factors – sex, race, age, disability, religion or even work hours.
If an employee believes that they have been discriminated against unfairly, the matter may end up in an Employment Tribunal. If found to be in the wrong, the employer may be instructed to pay compensation to a potentially unlimited amount and ‘correct the situation’.
Eldridges employment solicitors can provide advice in preventing discrimination, draft appropriate policies and assist in resolving discrimination matters.
