Discrimination in the Workplace & Whistleblowing

Discrimination and Whistleblowing claims can be difficult and complex and expert legal advice can often help to secure a successful outcome.


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. Read a case study of how we helped a man who felt he had been made redundant due to his age here.


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.
