Discrimination within the workplace: victimisation

Businesses faced with employees making repeated unsubstantiated complaints of discrimination will have to think twice before dismissing them following a Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) decision. The EAT held that the dismissal of an employee who brought a series of grievances and employment tribunal claims containing complaints of race discrimination did amount to victimisation. Many businesses will be concerned about the cost and time taken to deal with complaints of this nature and may increasingly consider workplace mediation as a way of resolving these types of issues. We can assist with providing a Mediation in the Workplace service by one of our very experienced solicitors and mediators.

We can help you to recognise the different types of discrimination (including victimisation) that can occur within the workplace and can help your business to take practical steps to help avoid breaching discrimination and harassment law.
