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.

Don't Suffer in Silence - We Can Help You

Despite the laws that are meant to protect working people from racial discrimination, many still suffer in silence, some because they are embarrassed about the treatment they have received, and others have genuine concerns about their potential loss of income.

We only represent individuals, not employers, so we understand your concerns. Our Employment Law Solicitors help people across the country who have suffered racial discrimination or abuse at work, with their claims for compensation.

What is Race Discrimination at Work?

Race discrimination is when someone is subjected to less favourable behaviour from their employers on the basis of their race. Race is one of the ‘protected’ areas of discrimination and it is against the law.

What is Racial Abuse at Work?

Racial abuse at work can happen in four ways:

  • Direct discrimination: for example, being denied promotion on the basis of your race.
  • Indirect discrimination: for example, not being offered a job, because of your accent.
  • Harassment: for example, violating an employee’s dignity with unwanted conduct and creating a hostile environment for that employer, because of their protected characteristic.
  • Victimisation: for example, being subject to degrading or unfavourable treatment at work, as a result of either reporting the discrimination act or supporting employees who have reported the act.

"I lodged a grievance with my employer. Can you still help?"

Whether you are thinking of bringing a claim against your employer or are in the middle of a conciliation, we may still be able to help you.

There is a time limit of 3 months, less one day, from the date of the racial discrimination incident, for you to lodge your case at the Employment Tribunal. It is also mandatory to go through the ACAS early conciliation scheme before you can submit a claim to the Tribunal. You may have up to 1 month from the issue of the ACAS Early Conciliation certificate to lodge your claim in the Employment Tribunal.
