Discrimination at work claim solicitors
We have helped over 3,000 employees across England and Wales with their employment law claims and we can help you with your claim.
Discrimination in the workplace is against the law
You can claim for discrimination at work in the following ‘protected’ areas:
- age discrimination
- disability discrimination
- gender reassignment discrimination
- pregnancy or maternity discrimination
- racial discrimination
- religion or belief discrimination
- sexual discrimination
- sexual orientation discrimination
In these types of work discrimination cases the victim needs to prove that they have been a victim of discrimination if they have been treated less favourably because of their characteristic in the 'protected' areas.
Our Employment Law Solicitors do understand how difficult it can be to prove discrimination at work, and we are here to help you. We also appreciate how distressing and complex employment discrimination claims can be for claimants.
We only represent employees (not employers) and we always work to make the discrimination claims process as stress free as possible.

Legal advice without jargon
A Co-op Legal Employment Law Solicitor can explain your situation to you without using legal jargon, and ensure that you understand each step as your discrimination case progresses.
Time limits for employment discrimination cases
There are strict time limits on employment discrimination cases so the earlier you start your claim, the more effective the process will be for you.
By law you must notify ACAS with details of your claim before it can be lodged at the Employment Tribunal. ACAS will then attempt conciliation with your employer. If the conciliation process is unsuccessful you will be issued with a certificate stating that conciliation has been attempted. Only then can your claim be progressed to the Employment Tribunal.
Fixed solicitor fees for employment discrimination cases
Once we have provided you with a written quote for the agreed work to be done, that price will not change unless the original information we are given is shown to be incorrect or circumstances change. There will be no nasty surprises.
If you are in the early stages of an employment discrimination dispute, you may want a Solicitor to write a grievance letter, and/or your appeal against a grievance outcome. The fixed fee for this service is £420 including VAT.
We also offer an investigation report where we review your documents and advise you on the prospects of your discrimination case succeeding. The fixed fee for an investigation report is £1,260 including VAT.
Do not suffer in silence. Discrimination at work is against the law and your case may help bring an end to unfair practices in the workplace.
