Discrimination and Harassment
There are various ways in which discrimination and harassment can arise in the workplace.
Beecham Peacock are here to help with all of your Employment Law problems.
You have the right to be treated fairly in your workplace, however workplace discrimination and harassment are unfortunately still common issues. In the workplace, it is unlawful for you to be treated less favourably as a result of, for example, your gender, age, religion, or sexual orientation.
Workplace discrimination can also be a result of your employer putting certain provisions in place that apply to everyone but which put you, or a group of employees who share characteristics listed above, at a distinct disadvantage; this is commonly referred to as indirect discrimination.
Workplace harassment can relate to unwanted sexual advances from another employee; it can also refer to being subjected to threatening behaviour.
Sometimes people may be afraid to speak out about discriminatory treatment, but you may be protected if you raise a concern or support a colleague’s complaint.
Discrimination can be subtle or open issues with the workplace. If you believe you have been subjected to or witnessed discrimination at work, we can provide support and advice on how to deal with such behaviour.
Workplace harassment and discrimination law is highly complex; it is important that you have specialist support and advice to enable you to challenge such treatment within the workplace, and if necessary, to make a claim to the Employment Tribunal.
