Unlawful discrimination is the most serious and one of the most complex areas of employment law. Modern employment law gives a wide degree of protection to those people who have, are associated with or who experience less favourable treatment because of protected characteristics. Those characteristics are Sex, Sexual Orientation, Disability, Race, Religion or Belief, Age, Pregnancy and Maternity, Gender Reassignment and Marital Status.


The Equality Act 2010 came into force on October 1st 2010 and covers all forms of discrimination. Our comprehensive guide to The Equality Act 2010 and its impact on discrimination law can be found here:

Types of Workplace Discrimination


We understand the problems faced by employees who believe that they are suffering discrimination and understand that there is no "one size fits all" solution to a particular situation. A lawyer advising an employee who has been discriminated against needs to be able to advise on the law and how it relates to the facts, to listen to the employee and understand their particular situation and the outcome that they desire, to understand the effect that discrimination can have on an individual and to work with the employee to determine a case plan to achieve the best result possible and then have the skill to put that plan into action.


At Canter Levin & Berg, our employment solicitors advise on discrimination issues on a daily basis. Our lawyers have decades of experience in the field of discrimination and have acted in some of the most important cases in recent years. Our lawyers regularly appear in Employment Tribunals and the Employment Appeal Tribunal involving complex discrimination issues in all areas. If you believe that you have been discriminated against it is essential that you take legal advice immediately in order to properly determine your options. Discrimination law is incredibly complex and legal advice and representation is vital in order for you to resolve the issues that you are facing, whatever they may be.
