Equality & Diversity

As an employer you have a duty to encourage equality and diversity and to comply with discrimination law. Discrimination issues can be complex, costly and damaging to your reputation.

Discrimination law protects employees, workers and others on the grounds of sex, race, age, disability, pregnancy and maternity, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, religion or belief and sexual orientation.

We can help you:

  • Prevent discrimination claims
  • Defend claims and represent you in the Employment Tribunal
  • Put policies in place to protect your business
  • Training courses for management and team leaders on their obligations
  • We can also provide advice and training on how to comply with organisations obligations under discrimination law, including the provision of goods and services and making reasonable adjustments for people who have a disability.
