Sex or race discrimination claims

If you are a victim of Sex or Race Discrimination, Simply Lawyers are here to help.

Sex or race discrimination is against the law, and if you believe that during your employment you have been discriminated against based on your sex, your sexual orientation, your race (including your skin colour, nationality and ethnic background), your religion and beliefs, your disability, or your age, you could be entitled to take legal action against your employer.

You may have entered into a same sex marriage or are undergoing a sex change and this has changed the way your colleagues and managers behave towards you. If they have begun to treat you differently, including automatically excluding you for a promotion despite your abilities or speaking to you differently from your peers, it may be the case that you are being discriminated against.

There are however some cases in which, if race or gender is an occupational requirement, it is acceptable to insist on a particular gender or race of individual when selecting at the application or interview stages of recruitment. This is also the case if the role will require work that is unsuitable for someone who is pregnant.

The areas of work that can be affected by sex or race discrimination include recruitment and selection, promotion, training, pay and benefits, redundancy and dismissal and terms and conditions of work. If you are an ex-employee, you are also protected against any kind of discrimination after you have left your position: for example, your employer not providing a reference that you are entitled to through your resignation relating to sex or race discrimination.
