Sex Discrimination in the workplace is any form of discrimination which is targeted at your gender. This is one of many protected characteristics under the Equality Act of 2010. At Bloomsbury Law, we understand that equality is something which is extremely important and any form of discrimination can be exceptionally hurtful and disheartening. We can assure you that our experts will help you through the process in order to resolve the situation as fast as possible.
Sex Discrimination in the workplace comes in many forms. It is illegal for employers to discriminate because of gender. The most common forms of Sex Discrimination are found in the following:
- Training, pay and benefits;
- Terms and conditions of work;
- Maternity Leave;
- Recruitment; and
- Redundancy and dismissal.
It is important to speak to your employers and explain exactly how you feel their actions are affecting you. If nothing changes, you should make a formal grievance letter. Afterwards, if no significant action is taken, you can make a formal claim to the Tribunal or Courts. It is important to seek legal advice early on in the process to ensure you maximize your success. At Bloomsbury Law, we appreciate that this process can be complicated. This is why we offer our expertise in order to best help alleviate any questions you may have so to ensure the process runs as smooth as possible.
