An employer indirectly discriminates against someone in the workplace if a seemingly neutral provision, criteria or practice is applied that puts a protected group of employees (or workers) at a particular disadvantage compared to other groups which cannot be objectively justified.
As with any dismissal claim, there are strict time limits by which a discrimination claim must be brought and you are therefore advised to contact us as soon as possible after the discrimination has taken place. Unlike other claims to the Employment Tribunal, a discrimination claim is not subject to any financial “ceiling” and can give rise to significant damages.
Victimisation is a form of discrimination and occurs where an employer subjects someone to a detriment because the person has carried out a protected act such as bringing legal proceedings, giving evidence or information in any legal proceedings, or making an allegation that another person has done something in breach of the Equality Act 2010.
