Employees have the right not to be discriminated against on a number of grounds. Employers must ensure they do not suffer detriment at the recruitment stage or during employment.
It is essential to have practical and user-friendly policies and to encourage a climate of mutual respect and tolerance. Our employment team can advise you on the legislative requirements and on how to introduce suitable policies. Where disputes arise, we help our clients to mediate them and reach a sensible settlement without resorting to the tribunals or the courts, where possible.
