Our specialist team of discrimination claims lawyers represent clients who have been discriminated against because of their race, colour, nationality or ethnic or national origin. We advise clients who have suffered race discrimination both at work and in many other areas of life.
Our team of expert employment lawyers represents workers who have been discriminated against because of their race. We have successfully brought and settled claims relating to race discrimination in the workplace. Examples of race discrimination at work include:
- a company favouring an employee of a particular nationality
- a worker being subjected to harassment because of their race
- an individual being forced to work in an environment where racist jokes are made
Employers should also avoid discrimination because of race in relation to recruitment, selection for promotion and training, and in pay discussions.
It is also unlawful for service providers such as healthcare providers, social services and retailers including banks, travel agents and travel companies to discriminate on the grounds of race. Our human rights lawyers have successfully represented people who have suffered discrimination at the hands of many such organisations and have secured compensation and apologies for such discrimination.
