Work Discrimination Claim Solicitors

Discrimination

We are experts in all types of discrimination law and have a wealth of experience when it comes to representing individuals in claims based on workplace discrimination arising out of age, disability, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

Discrimination claims can be complex and the deadlines for issuing claims are extremely tight. Therefore it is essential if you feel that you have been discriminated against that you contact us to get expert legal advice as soon as possible.

Whistleblowing

The law regulating whistleblowing is notoriously complex.

Many whistleblowers find it hard to progress matters on their own and sadly employers often react badly even when employees make disclosures with the best of intentions. It is no coincidence we think that whistleblowers often find themselves on the wrong end of disciplinary or performance procedures and that ultimately many are dismissed.

If you are considering making a disclosure or have done so and feel that you have been subjected to detriments and/or have been dismissed for that reason then it is essential that you speak to us as soon as possible in order to maximise your protection under the law.

Speak to the experts

Our comprehensive and compassionate employment law team can assist you whether you are considering a move which you feel may have a negative impact on your employment, or if you are already facing unfair treatment at work. Call our Leeds, York or Sheffield office today in confidence and we can help you in resolving your situation.
