Our Team of Employment Solicitors have outstanding knowledge and experience in acting for individuals against a variety of professional and private employers. If you have been discriminated against in the workplace, and you think you may have an Employment Discrimination Claim, let Hodgkinsons Solicitors, Skegness, help you.
UK legislation helps to protect individuals from discrimination at work, particularly laws such as the Equality Act 2010. If you are discriminated against, due to the list of characteristics set out under this Law, our Employment Lawyers can help you to make a formal complaint and a claim for compensation. This specific list of attributes is otherwise known as ‘protected characteristics’, meaning that it is unlawful to discriminate against an employee based on one of these traits. If you have been treated unfairly in the workplace because of your sex, sexual orientation, race, age, religion, disability or maternity, let Hodgkinsons Discrimination Solicitors help you to get the justice you deserve.
Whether you are being discriminated against directly or indirectly, Hodgkinsons can help you to file your claim. Your circumstances may change depending on your terms of employment and your position within the Company. Our Solicitors can handle a variety of discrimination claims for a range of professionals from employees to directors. Common types of Discrimination Claims handled by our Employment Solicitors are:
- Unfair Pay
- Denying benefits or barring access to facilities
- Unfair rules
- Childcare and family care discrimination
- Age discrimination
- Maternity discrimination
Our Solicitors will help to obtain evidence and represent your case whilst guiding you through the process and where appropriate, will deal directly with your employer and the legal system. Whether you need legal advice on raising a complaint, guidance on how to go through the internal grievance process, or if you would like representation when taking your employer to an Employment Tribunal, we can help you.
We will always make efforts to settle your Discrimination Claim out of Court. When you instruct Hodgkinsons your Solicitor will negotiate with your employer in an attempt to reach a settlement or severance package. When an amicable settlement cannot be reached, the best outcome may be achieved by taking the Claim or an Employment Tribunal. Our Solicitors can issue proceedings and represent you at either an Employment Tribunal or an Employment Appeal Tribunal. Our Specialists will always put your best interests first and will assess the options available to you, proceeding in the way which will be best for your individual circumstances.
Discrimination Law can be a complex area of legislation which is why you need the help of a knowledgeable legal advisor such as Hodgkinsons Solicitors Skegness, who will always provide you with clear, straightforward advice.
