It is not only unfair for you to suffer discrimination at work, but it is also unlawful. That’s why our experienced solicitors are here to help you. We can advise you on how to make an official complaint, known as a grievance, to your manager or head of HR.

In cases where discrimination has been too severe to allow a resolution, we are highly skilled in negotiating favourable severance packages if you want to leave your current employer.

You can rest assured that if your employer’s internal procedures do not unable you to reach a reasonable resolution and you believe you need to resign or you have been dismissed, we have extensive experience in helping initiate substantive dismissal proceedings in the employment tribunal. Taking legal advice at an early stage is strongly recommended.
