Facing problems at work due to a drink drive charge? Speak to our recommended drink drive solicitors.

Do you feel you've been treated less favourably than other colleagues or discriminated against by your employer because of your race, nationality, ethnicity or national origins?

As employment solicitors we understand that it is a difficult and often uneasy subject to broach but if you feel you have been discriminated against due to your race then it is time to speak up and take action.

The Equality Act 2010 protects employees from the application stage of employment right through to dismissal and these safeguards provided by law may even apply after your employment has terminated, say for example if your former employer provides a poor reference or fails to provide one at all because of your race.

Our experienced team can provide high quality advice if;

  • You have been treated badly because of your race
  • Your employer’s policies disadvantage you because of your race or nationality
  • You bring a complaint about race discrimination and are later treated unfairly because of doing so
  • You are treated in a way which is intimidating, humiliating, degrading or offensive

The unfair treatment you receive may not come directly from your employer. If you are subject to unfair treatment from fellow employees, the employers’ agents or even third parties, you are still entitled to bring a claim and seek resolution. If you feel you have been treated unfairly due to the race of someone else (for example a family member), you will also be protected by the Equality Act.

You may feel that your employer has discriminated against you unintentionally. However, you may still be able to bring action against your employer even if they do not intend to discriminate or even if they share the same race, colour or nationality as you.

If a grievance has been raised by an employee following alleged discrimination, your employer has a duty to follow a Code of Practice and investigate the concern that has been highlighted in full. If they fail to follow the correct procedure when investigating the grievance this could have future implications at any subsequent Employment Tribunal.

Furthermore if you have been the victim of racial harassment from a third party or a customer, you may bring a claim against your employer if they fail to take reasonable action to protect you from the party in question or from being subjected to further harassment from a different party.

We understand what a traumatic experience being subjected to race discrimination can be, so why not speak to our experts and let our employment professionals help you through this difficult time. A race discrimination claim must be brought within 3 months of the discrimination occurring so if you feel you have been the victim of race discrimination then please do not hesitate in seeking confidential advice from our experienced team of solicitors today.
