Employment Discrimination Law

Pragmatic advice and counsel

Employment discrimination cases are rarely out of the news. For most, the area of disability discrimination and absenteeism is perhaps the most complex as not only does employment discrimination law change regularly and can be extremely costly if claims are settled in favour of the employee.

We can provide legal advice on all areas of discrimination at work including:

  • disability
  • caste
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • maternity and pregnancy
  • race
  • religion and belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

Please note, these payments are in addition to others including loss of earnings, contractual payments and a basic award.
