employment discrimination


Regardless of your business ethos, policies and values, all employers face challenges in managing issues about sex, race, religion and belief, gender reassignment, pregnancy/maternity/paternity issues, disabilities, sexuality and sexual orientation, age or marital/civil partnership status.

Our expertise includes:

Compliant dress codes, recruitment and job advertisements
Drafting policies and procedures
Equal opportunities and investigation training
Tribunal complaints
Workplace management such as grievances, disciplinary issues or consultations
